What is an Animal Fetish?

Native American Jewelry Blog tips and iinformationA fetish is a rock carving of an animal that captures the spirit and the essence of the animal, not necessarily its exact detailed conformation. Indian fetishes can be carried or displayed. Those that are carried are often called pocket fetishes. Those that are displayed are called table fetishes. Zuni artists are the traditional fetish carvers but there are many talented Navajo carvers as well. The animals can vary but often include birds, bears, horses, mountain lions, turtles, foxes, wolves and many others. The stones usually used include turquoise, mother of pearl, pink shell, acoma jet, serpentine, pipestone and many others. Read more about fetishes.
