A beautiful Zuni Prairie Dog Fetish carved from Picasso Marble with Turquoise eyes by Sedrick Banteah from Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico
The Zuni tribe have been carving totem animal fetish statues for centuries and believe that each animal embodies powers or qualities that may influence whoever has the privilege to be its guardian. The fetishes are collector’s items and sought after throughout the world.
The Prairie Dog represents the strength of stillness and retreat for self-empowerment whilst Picasso Marble brings qualities of grounding, calming and strength.
