Paula says - "Neil Thomas is one of the most celebrated stone and fetish carvers among the Navajo. The stones Thomas uses are exceptional and the colors are bright and vibrant and his animals have great detail, character and feeling. His work is unmistakable."
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.
