Fetishes FE75Unisex ● 170.00 €
Little Zuni fetish. Unique piece.
Mole carved in black-jet, carrying several little fetishes animals on its back:
A coyote carved in Zuni Stone, a bear in turquoise, an eagle in marble, a wolverine in pipestone and a fox in white jasper. All these animals are linked on the mole thanks to a tendon string with little turquoise nuggets and pieces of coral.
The mole is symbole of the underground and guardian of the gardens. It is an intermediary between humans and belowground powers. The mole symbolizes fecondity and sensuality.
Dimensions (H x L x l in mm) including animals on the mole's back:
42mm x 60mm x 34mm
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.
