Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Colorfully and contemporary this bear fetish is made out of brianite.  Named after Zuni fetish carver Brian Yatsattie, this stone is a composite of turquoise and wampum shell that are in a random mosaic pattern.  The bear is considered Guardian of the West by the Zuni, and they represent strength, courage, and healing and protection.

1  1/8” tall x 1  7/8” long x 5/8” 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.
