Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Wolves are the Guardian animal of the East and a powerful hunting fetish.  They also represent teachers and pathfinders.  Looking alert and ready to protect, this magnificent wolf is carved out of Travertine (Zuni Rock) with inlay turquoise eyes.  He is carrying a prayer bundle made out of mother of pearl shell and green snail shell.  Zuni fetish artist Delvin Leekya comes from a family of carvers, and is the grandson of Leekya Deyuse.  Delvin continues to create simple traditional fetishes in the style of his famous grandfather.  Signed

1  1/2” tall x 2  5/8” long x 1  1/8” 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.
