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.

OWL - A night bird with a large head and large eyes. The eyes cannot move in their sockets so the owl can rotate its head up to 270 degrees. With exceptional vision, acute hearing, silent flight, Owl is a stealthy and effective hunter. Native Americans attribute Owl with wisdom and sacred knowledge and call upon Owl medicine to help them see through deception, external appearances and illusion and to discover hidden truths. Plains Indians wear owl feathers to protect against evil spirits.

ANTLER is a hornlike, bony growth, usually branched, that grows in pairs on the head of a deer, moose, elk, caribou, or other members of the deer family. Antlers occur on the heads of male deer and on some related species of either sex. Because of antler's rich brown colors and ease of carving, it is a preferred medium of many carvers. Antlers are a renewable resource, as they are shed each year and grow more branches each season as the animal ages.
