Zuni fetishes are carvings made from different materials by the Zuni people.  Traditionally, these carvings have served a ceremonial purpose for their makers, and each animal is believed to have inherent powers or qualities that may aid the owner.  The artist’s styles are as unique as the artists themselves.  As a form of Native American art, Zuni fetishes are sold to collectors worldwide.

Lapis Lazuli is a deep blue semi-precious stone that is treasured for its intense color.  There can be white calcite spots in it or flecks of gold pyrite within the stone.  Lapis is mainly mined out of Afghanistan and Pakistan, but smaller quantities can be found in Russia, Chile, Mongolia, Canada, and the United States.  Lapis has been mined since the Neolithic Age, and was used for jewelry, daggers, bowls, and beads.
