Description

Handcrafted by Zuni Pueblo fetish carver Darryl Shack, this horse was created with green onyx with touches of turquoise added for its eyes and a offering bundle on its spine.

Fetishes are small carvings that depict animals or other important Native icons. Many tribes and Pueblos of the Southwest are known for making fetishes, but this ancient art form is most closely associated with the Zuni, who are considered the most skilled fetish carvers. Early Zuni fetishes were called "Ahlashiwe" or stone ancients. Traditionally, they depict wolves, bears, mountain lions, eagles, frogs, rabbits, fish, corn maiden, and other animals. The Zuni people believe that the skills and qualities of the animal reside in these fetishes and can bring some of the animals’ power to their keeper.

Horse measures 1-7/8" long and 1/2" wide, stands 1-1/4" tall. Comes with a certificate of authenticity.
