Fetishes are stone carvings representing various animals and other aspects of nature, used primarily for hunting, protection and to ensure fertility. The Zuni believe that a spirit lives within the fetish, giving each its unique power. Fetish carvings are said to have magical powers believed to protect the owner or craftsman from various problems of the mind or body. These carvings have long been used as good luck charms and are meant as a blessing when given as a gift. Most of the Zuni Fetishes offered for sale by Kachina Country USA are one of a kind. If in the rare case that we do have multiples, some variations may occur from what is pictured. As with all handmade and natural elements please allow for imperfections.
