This mama otter with her baby was carved by Brandon Phillips. The mama is Picasso marble with inlaid turquoise eyes, and the baby is onyx. We hope that you have already, or will someday, see otters in the water with their babies. The babies actually are on their mama's bellies as they float in the water. It is such a joyful site! More about otters below.

Otters are water creatures that live in oceans, rivers, creeks and lakes. The mothers float around with their babies on their bellies when they are young. They put their food on their bellies making their bellies dining tables. They are associated with happiness, joy, and community.
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.
