Pablito Zuni Fetish Carving
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. Many fetishes have a medicine bundle or adornment tied on the back of the animal that often consists of coral seed beads, shell heishi, feathers and other stone pieces. Read more about fetishes.
Jet is a solid black type of lignite coal that is mined around the Acoma Pueblo region. It is called Acoma Jet, or Jet for short. Read more about stones.
