In Zuni Pueblo, mountain lions are the guardians of the north, which is where wisdom lives. They are sleek hunters who are primarily solitary predators. Full of grace, they move through life silently and with great power.
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.
