Fetishes FE66Unisex ● 80.00 €
Little Zuni fetish. Unique piece.
Duo of turtles: a parent and its child are carved in orange alabaster. Their eyes and the details on their carapaces are made in black-jet. A row of turquoises, coral and shells nuggets is attached around them thanks to a tendon string, giving them more strength.
The turtle symbolizes protection, longevity, love and knowledge (it is the mother of the earth).
Dimensions (H x L x l) in mm = 35 x 60 x 32
In a time when the Zuni tribe lived from agriculture and hunting, the hunters couldn't do without these amulets and would never forget to bring them during their expeditions. The fetishes assure benevolence of the soul.
Each animal represents its spirit, its own inner force and protects its owner.
Proudly handmade in USA.
