This badger was carved by Terrence Tsethlikai from a lovely piece of dolomite and inlaid turquoise eyes. The carving is meticulous with the fur, tail, and ears detailed and a line down the back. It is signed TT on the bottom. This carving is part of a collection that we purchased 15 years ago.
Size: .675" H x 1.675" L x .75" W
In the Zuni tradition badgers are the guardians of the south. 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.
