"Raven represents magic, transformation and a change in consciousness. What great form and detail, plus a colorful medicine bundle."

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.
RAVEN: Raven is a messenger that can help us work through failure and short-comings and guide us through the darkest of times. He is mysterious, clever and represents magic and transformation and a change in consciousness. Like Coyote, Raven is considered to be a prankster, he doesn't have the shady reputation sometimes associated with Coyote.
Medicine Bundle. Many fetishes have a medicine bundle, offering bundle, or adornment tied on the back of the animal that can consists of coral seed beads, shell heishi, feathers and other stone pieces. These may be used as an offering to the fetish, to evoke the spirit of the fetish or to increase the strength of a fetish.
