More Information:

Prized for their beauty and spiritual renewal, fetishes have long been an important part of Native American Culture. When a Fetish maker prays over his created work, a mystical power is believed to become released, assisting a person in finding a solution to their present problems. All Southwestern tribes make and use fetishes; however, the Zuni people have developed a reputation for being skillful carvers. The Bear is the guardian and master of the west. His fetish represents healing and protection. This bear fetish is carved in jet by master Zuni carver Brian Yatsattie.
