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.

Indian Fox Symbolism

Fox is known for intelligence, cleverness and adaptability. He can be a prankster but also a wise mentor. Fox helps us focus on our targets, our goals in life, and encourages us to explore all methods to achieve those goals. This sometimes means thinking outside the box to attack a challange from a different angle. Fox blends into the surroundings and teaches us to be adaptable and patient and to use our environment and circumstances to our advantage.

What is a Medicine Bundle?

Many fetishes have a medicine bundle, offering bundle, or adornment tied onto the animal that consists of turquoise nuggets, coral seed beads, shell heishi, feathers and other stone pieces. The bundle may be an offering to the fetish, to used evoke the spirit of the fetish or to increase the strength of a fetish.
