What is an Animal Fetish?
fetish is a carving of an animal that captures the spirit and the essence of the
animal, not necessarily its exact detailed conformation. Fetishes are carved from
many types of stone, wood, antler, shell and other materials. Often the eyes and
spots of adornment, called power spots, inset pieces of contrasting stones such
as turquoise, jet and coral.
BADGER is honored as a healing animal and as a tenacious hunter.
