Paula says - "Sampson Tulley's animals are carved in what is called 'reservation style' having minimal detail and closely resembling the rocks from which they came. The feather adornment is characteristic of Tulley's work.

"This is identified as a lion by the way the long tail comes up and lays along the back."

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.

Mountain Lion Symbolism

Mountain Lion symbolizes grace, leadership, and strength. Lion has the natural ability to lead without insisting that others follow. She teaches the ability to be so true to yourself - in responsibility, honesty, responsibility -and to trust your inner knowledge and direction. Lion can impart power and self-confidence when dealing with problematic people. The Cherokee people considered Mountain Lion sacred because she has the power to see in the dark.
