Fetishes FE79Unisex ● 120.00 €
Little Zuni fetish. Unique piece.
Trio of turtles: a parent and its children are carved in marble. Their eyes and the details on their carapaces are made in Sleeping Beauty turquoise. 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) : 63mm x 78mm x 53mm
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.
