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.
Skunk - Skunk has a self defense method that is peaceful and effective in dealing with threats - a pungent spray that says "leave me alone". Skunk wears a black and white coat of arms proudly and walks the earth with confidence. Skunk teaches us to be aware in every situation and to avoid or end conflict without violence and with minimal effort. When troubles arise, Skunk can help calm jittery nerves to move us into a peaceful state of mind so we can assess a situation and make good decisions.
