Zuni fetishes are small carvings made out of different materials by the Zuni Indians. The Zuni’s believe that these carvings serve a ceremonial purpose. Often, these fetishes depict animals and icons that are integral to their cultures. Collectors worldwide search for these forms of contemporary Native American art.
Typically, Zuni fetishes were created out of materials that were indigenous to their region (or acquired by trade). Materials include: jet, turquoise, mother-of-pearl, coral, fishrock, marble, bone, and even elk antler.
