The dragonfly is an important insect in Zuni legend. It is a shamanistic creature with supernatural powers.

Dragonflies symbolize activity and swiftness and are considered flighty and carefree.

Some Zuni sources say that the dragonfly is a messenger that carries thoughts to the Spirit World. When a dragonfly is depicted with double wings, it is referred to as the "Pueblo Cross".

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.

Picasso Marble (or Picasso stone) is a carbonate rock of diverse natural colors such as gray, brown and black and with seemingly randomly oriented transecting black veinlets.
