From Zuni Fetishes and Carvings by Kent McManis:

The Lasiloo family "is known for its emphasis on variety of materials...mostly create highly stylized animals... The late Eugene Mahooty first started carving in the he late 1970s followed by Lloyd Lasiloo and finally Al Lasiloo in the early 1980s. They worked with then in-law Rodney Laiwakete who helped spread the art to his brothers.

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.

Frogs are considered a major rain-bringing fetish so very important to the Zuni who live in an arid portion of the southwest US. Frogs also represent abundance and fertility. It is said that women become pregnant when a frog fetish is kept next to the bed - which can be a good thing or a surprise ! So be forewarned !

Marble. Most marble is 90% calcite or dolomite. It is commonly white, brown, black and mottled or variegated. Read more about stones.
