This black marble otter was carved by Jonas Hustito. It has inlaid turquoise eyes, etched whiskers, nose, mouth, and toes. Its tail is tucked up between its legs. It looks like it is deep in thought while floating on the water...or maybe it is looking up to the sky with otter daydreams.
Size: 1" H x 2.75" L x 1" W
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.
