Emery Bobelu Serpentine Parrot Fetish

Item No: 22954

$ 33.00

  • Zuni artist Emery Bobelu hand-carved this striking fetish, a beautiful example of an ancient art form.

    In Pueblo culture, the brightly colored feathers have been highly valued for nearly a thousand years. The bright colors were associated with the south and the sun.

    Created using serpentine, pen shell, turquoise, and jet, this fetish represents Zuni culture and the legacy of the fetish-carving tradition.

    Fetish measures 1-5/8” long  x 3/4” wide x 1-1/2” height.
