Availability : Ships regularly
Item SKU : 104783

A Native American fetish is a carving from rock, shell, antler, wood or other material that depicts an animal or other spirit. The carving captures the spirit and the essence of the animal, not necessarily its exact detailed conformation. Traditionally the Zuni carvers have been regarded as the best artists of this age old craft.  

Here artist Claudia Peina has used antler to carve this standing bear.


Approximately 2 1/2" high.
