Zuni carver, Maxx Laate has brought us an eagle ready to take flight with this hand carved piece perched with wings spread wide. Made of antler with inlaid turquoise eyes, the details of this beautifully carved piece includes elements that illustrate the feathers of the eagle’s wings and tail; long talons, and the strong beak.

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.
