Paula says - "The curling brown matrix in the marble is perfect to show the texture of the wool of the sheep that Ed Lementino saw hiding in there. The matrix in the sheep you receive may vary slightly from the one pictured."

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. Although carved from many types of rock, fishrock is traditional. Read more about fetishes.

SHEEP - Zunis got their first sheep from the Spaniards and sheep have since become a main source of negotiable wealth. 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, patience, gentleness and riches.
