Traditionally fetishes are carved by the Zuni tribe, but when you touch these pieces made by Cochiti carver Wilson Romero, you will know that you hold something exceptional in your hands. Wilson spends hours in the New Mexico desert looking for the perfect stones, stones he believes already hold the animal's spirit. He then brings these home and hand carves each statue at his grinding wheel under the cedar tree in his front yard. It is a craft that he has been perfecting for decades, and that he has now taught his son and son-in-law to carry on.
Each piece comes gift ready - wrapped in a cotton sachet with a card outlining the animal and stone's significance.
