Roy Davis - Navajo
Olive Shell Badger Fetish
Paula says - "I love the way Roy Davis used the olive shell to give color and texture to this tiny badger's fur. Did I mention that this carving is tiny? Great for pocket or pouch."
Dime above shows scale of this badger.
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, fish rock is traditional. Read more about fetishes.
Badger is honored as a healing animal and as a tenacious hunter.
