Beaver with Bundle - Brown Glass by Leland Boone (Zuni)

<< Previous in Fetishes Next in Fetishes >>
Price: $36.00
Item Number: Z01023
This beaver is made by Leland Boone from brown glass and has a bundle of pink mussel shell and coral.  Like his mother, Lena Boone, who is the granddaughter of Teddy Weahkee and daughter of Edna Leki, Leland Boone is known for using unusual stones and materials, carrying on his family's traditional, simple style.

Beavers are known to be very energetic and demonstrate great persistence in whatever task they perform.  The also are known to mate for life.

Fetish carvings are made in numerous styles and materials and are representative of a vast array of animals and figures since artists and carvers have become more creative and varied. Carving fetishes has developed into one of the most collectible art forms of the Zuni Tribe today. Fetishes are still made and used in homes, for special purposes and religious ceremony. They originally came from the belief that when a stone resembled a certain animal, the power of that animal resided in the stone. Sometimes after finding such a stone, carving a bit of the stone to bring out more of the animal resemblance was done.

Height 0.75", Length 2.5"
