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. Read more about fetishes.
Ash. Ash trees grow from the East to the Midwest USA. Preferring the well-drained loam soil found in river valleys, ash can grow to 120' tall and a diameter of 6' with nearly half the trunk height clear of branches. It is a tan wood similar to hickory in strength, stiffness, and hardness and has straight and even grain.
