Zuni carver, Russell Shack, carved this hummingbird of abalone, inlaid jet for eyes, gave it a sterling silver beak, and put it on a stone base.  The brilliant colors of the abalone include green, pink, grey and silver.  Its wings are spread out, appearing to hover the way hummingbirds do.

Size: 2.25" H x 1.5" L x .825" W

Hummingbirds are fierce defenders of their families.  Many Indigenous people consider them to be messengers between this world and the spirit world.  And, in some tribes they are considered to be “love medicine”.

Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
