Paula says - "Talk about minimalist carving. When I first saw this fetish I couldn't tell if it was a mole or a badger or what - until I saw the distinctive beaver tail. A beautiful piece of banded onyx stone."

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.

Beaver is industrious and diligent. He represents achievement, hard work and family unity.

Medicine Bundle - Many fetishes have a medicine bundle, offering bundle, or adornment tied on the back of the animal that consists of coral seed beads, shell heishi, feathers and other stone pieces. The bundle may be used as an offering to the fetish, to evoke the spirit of the fetish or to increase the strength of a fetish.
