What is a Fetish?

A fetish is a carving of an animal that captures the spirit and the essence of the animal, not necessarily its exact detailed conformation. Read more about fetishes.

Bear is considered the most powerful of all of the animals and is one of the most popular subjects of fetish carvers. Bear is a spiritual guide and represents strength and self-knowledge. He has supernatural powers, great healing powers. Bear is a symbol deliberate action, introspection, soul and insight for the past and the future. The Bear is the guardian of the West an is one of the animals of the Six Directions.

ANTLER is a hornlike, bony growth, usually branched, that grows in pairs on the head of a deer, moose, elk, caribou, or other members of the deer family. Antlers occur on the heads of male deer and on some related species of either sex. Because of antler's rich brown colors and ease of carving, it is a preferred medium of many carvers. Antlers are a renewable resource, as they are shed each year and grow more branches each season as the animal ages.

Sinew is thread made from animal tendon.
