This badger is ready for anything, love, peace, or protection! It was made by Enrike Leekya from travertine and has a turquoise nose and eyes. Enrike inlaid the striking back marking on the badger's back with jet. It fits so well in the hand.

In the Zuni tradition badgers are the guardians of the south which is associated with new beginnings. Badgers are diligent and fierce; you would not want to mess with one! They are creatures of both the world underground where their dens are, and the world on Mother Earth’s belly where they live during the day to hunt.
Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal. 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.
