Paula says - "I love the animals carved by Herbert Davis. His style is anatomically correct and much more detailed than many of the minimalist-style carvers. And this buffalo is larger than most fetish carvings, which makes it even more special."

Native American Navajo Buffalo Fetish Carving

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, fish rock is traditional. Read more about fetishes.

Buffalo ("Tatanka" in Lakota), represents prophesy and fulfillment of powers. Buffalo also represents the perseverence and ability to rise above one's weaknesses. Buffalo teaches that everything exists in abundance if it is respected and accepted with gratitude.
