GLASS SLAG TURTLE BY LELAND BOONE ZUNI FETISH

Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Zuni turtle fetishes are one of the oldest symbols of Mother Earth and they symbolize longevity.  Zuni artist Leland Boone created this exquisite turtle fetish.  Leland usually carves his Zuni fetishes out of non-traditional materials, most notably glass slag.  With swirls of colors this material is unique.

2  1/4″ tall x 2” long x 1  3/8” wide

Zuni fetishes are carvings made from various materials by the Zuni people.  Traditionally, fetishes served a ceremonial purpose for their creators and they represented animals and figures that were part of their culture.  Today, as a form of Native American Art, they are sold to collectors worldwide.  With a myriad of materials like turquoise, shell, jet, marble, serpentine, and much more, Zuni fetish carvers are able to create carvings in a style of their own.
