What is a Fetish? A fetish is a rock carving of an animal that captures the spirit and the essence of the animal, not necessarily its exact detailed conformation. A double fetish represents relationship and unity. Read more about fetishes.

Bear. The bear is a symbol of strength and deliberate action, introspection, soul and insight for the past and the future. The Bear is one of the guardian animals of the Six Directions.

Heart Line. The heart line is a line etched, painted or inlaid along one or both sides of the animal. It usually extends from the mouth to the region of the heart. There are many interpretations as to what a heart line represents, but it is often said to represent the pathway of the breath of the animal to the life force which is the heart. Others feel that the heart line points to the soul of the animal. It is thought that a heart line gives the fetish healing or medicinal power.

Marble. Most marble is 90% calcite or dolomite. It is commonly white, brown, black and
mottled or variegated.
