Fetishes are used primarily for hunting, protection and to ensure fertility. The Zuni believe that a spirit lives within the fetish, giving it 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 stone fetish carvings have long been used as good luck charms and are meant as a blessing when given as a gift. As with all handmade and natural elements please allow for imperfections.
