Zuni Fetishes

Otherwise known as a charm or talisman a fetish can be given a power by its owner greater than its mere materialistic value. These pieces are only carvings until blessed and used. All pieces come with short write up of history and other details.

Originally carved by the Zuni, a Pueblo tribe from the South West of America they are now also carved by the Navajos and other tribes. I try to stay to the Zuni nation. They like many other tribes believed in stones that when carried could bring luck, protection and power. Stones that resembled animals were the most prized. This lies in the Zuni creation myth that said that some of the animals were turned to stone to protect and make space for the humans and those in the stones gave the stone the power, essence of the animal.
