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.

Badger Spirit - Badger has a close connection to Mother Earth and can help you get grounded and focus on what is important when you are lost and confused. Badger teaches you to stand your ground, walk your own path at your own pace - to have faith in your own abilities to overcome challenges no matter what others may think.

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.
