What is an Animal Fetish?

Native American Jewelry and Fetish Carving BooksA fetish is a carving of an animal that captures the spirit and the essence of the animal, not necessarily its exact detailed conformation.

Often the eyes and spots of adornment, called power spots, inset pieces of contrasting stones such as turquoise, jet and coral.

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.
