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.

Otter - A mischievous creature regarded as the master of play. Otter symbolizes laughter, curiosity, grace, and empathy. Otter teaches that itís possible to view life as a game to be enjoyed, rather than a burden to be endured. Otter shows us how to let events unfold naturally, to detach from our problems, yet be curious about them and find an answer. This perspective helps us find answers as easily as the otter catches pup, to become like Otter and move gently into the river of life.

Jet (Acoma Jet) - A solid, durable type of lignite coal that originated from wood material. It is mined around the Acoma Pueblo region, among other places, thus the name Acoma Jet. It is very popular with Indian artists for carving fetishes. It is also used for inlaying jewelry but usually is not used in jewelry stone sets. Jet can be heavy or very lightweight and it is sometimes mistaken for plastic. Read about stones.
