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. Read more about fetishes.

ARGITE - Augite appears in Native American carvings but little can be found about its origin. It has been called Spotted Serpentine and is similar to Zebra Stone which is a black and white stone from the vicinity of Prescott, Arizona. It is said to bring out your intuition, tenderness, gentleness and love, help you exercise self-control, understand your chosen destiny, and stimulate creativity and success. Read more about stones.

SHEEP - Navajo got their first sheep from the Spaniards and sheep have since become a main source of income. Herds are kept on remote parts of the reservation. Herding is an all-year-round occupation and groups of men take turns watching the sheep. Sheep fetish carvings represent charity, elegance, and riches.
