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. Like the zebra that this serpentine rock is named for, this lion seems to disapear into the background."

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.

Mountain Lion symbolizes grace, leadership, and strength. Lion has the natural ability to lead without insisting that others follow. She teaches the ability to be so true to yourself - in responsibility, honesty, responsibility -and to trust your inner knowledge and direction. Lion can impart power and self-confidence when dealing with problematic people. The Cherokee people considered Mountain Lion sacred because she has the power to see in the dark.
