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, fishrock is traditional. Read more about fetishes.

Lizard Symbolism

Lizard, often referred to as Brother Lizard, is revered by many Native American tribes and considered by some to be a medicine animal. Brother Lizard teaches one to pay close attention to dreams and what they are trying to communicate, for in dreams we sub-consciously process of all the messages received while awake. Brother Lizard is often associated with protection (especially of children), prosperity, renewal, healing, survival and good luck.
