Additional Info

Zuni cosmology relates the story of six directions
each protected by a different animal: bear, wolf,
badger, eagle and mole.

This comports with the original Zuni legend of
the time before time when the masters of the
universe sent bolts of lightning to earth to paralyze
predatory creatures that had an advantage over
Zuni people.  

Zunis began to notice rocks on the ground that
resembled creatures that had been captured in stone.
Thus was the tradition of Zuni fetish carvings created.

Zuni carvings today are not considered to have "fetish"
power unless they have been blessed by a Zuni priest.

In their endless beauty and variety, however, they
have had the power to foster a vibrant economic force
for the Zuni Pueblo.

Zuni carving collectors are found all over the world.
