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. Read more about fetishes.
Horse. The horse is an animal of freedom and the Horse Fetish has the power of healing, strength and safe movement.
fetishes have a medicine bundle or adornment tied on the back of the horse
that often consists of coral seed beads, shell heishi, feathers and other stone
pieces. The style and detail of carving varies among artists but usually includes
detail on the face, ears, tail and mane. Often the eyes and other spots of adornment
on the horse are inset pieces of contrasting stones such as turquoise, coral and
others. Read more about
Heart Line. The heart line is a line etched, painted or inlaid along one or both sides of the animal. It usually extends from the mouth to the region of the heart. There are many interpretations as to what a heart line represents, but it is often said to represent the pathway of the breath of the animal to the life force which is the heart. Others feel that the heart line points to the soul of the animal. It is thought that a heart line gives the fetish healing or medicinal power.
