A beautiful Zuni Raven with Berry Fetish carved from Jet with Turquoise eyes by Calvert Bowannie 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 Raven carries wisdom from Spirit and symbolises transformation whilst Jet brings qualities of grounding, purification and protection. The berry carried by Raven represents the fertile seed of life and regeneration.
