An uncommon fetish, the mole, in reality a shrew in the Southwest, protects growing crops from mice, rodents and small game. The least powerful of the protective and hunting animals, moles are generally carved low to the ground, with pointed noses and thin, pointed tails. This Zuni Fetish carving is made from the unique fossilized orthoceras stone. Zuni Fetishes are small carvings made from various materials such as bone, shells and gemstones by the Zuni people.
These carvings traditionally serve a ceremonial purpose for their creators and depict animals and icons integral to their culture. Each animal has great ificance and meaning, many with protective abilities or healing powers. Fetish carvings are believed to have magical powers and protect or enhance the owner or craftsman.
It is pd to properly care for Zuni Fetishes that they should be given offerings of cornmeal and kept in special turquoise encrusted fetish pots or pouches. The Zuni also divided the world into six regions or directions: north, west, south, east, above, and below.
Each direction is represented by a Prey God, or guardian animal, and are listed as follows: north — the yellow mountain lion, west — the black bear represented by the color bluesouth — the red badger, east mole fetish the white wolf, above or the mole fetish — the multi-colored eagle, below or underground — the black mole. These directional animals are among the most powerful and are the guardian and master of their region. Collectors worldwide collect fetishes as a form of contemporary Native American art with appreciation for the craftsmanship and meaning behind each fetish.
The meaning of each is provided within the product. However over time many carvers started to create some non-traditional animals due to requests, region and popularity. These non-traditional fetishes may not have the ificance or abilities of other more tradtional fetish carvings.
