Paula says - "Navajo fetish maker Harold Davidson creates unique animals. Each of his pieces captures the essence of the animal spirit displaying character and his signature details. He decorates each piece with radiant colored feathers attached by colorful glass seed beads. His masterful etching of the stone provides a striking contrast. Each fetish is signed and dated. Caution: If you buy one, others will follow!"

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.

Beaver is industrious and diligent - represents achievement, hard work and family unity.
