Peter Gasper carved these two foxes from brown jasper that resembles wood - really nice!  The larger one has a bit of white quartz on its jaw.  They each have their own bundles of a mother of pearl arrowhead with heishi, coral and turquoise beads.  The look in opposite directions with their turquoise eyes.  We like to think they are watching one another's backs.

Size: 1.125" H x 2.375" L x 1" W

Wolves, coyotes and foxes all look the same in the distance.  In Zuni there is a word that translates into "bushytail" in English.  This bushytails are foxes.  Foxes are playful, clever, quick, and protective of their young.  They also mate for life.

These life-long loves come with a card detailing the meaning of them being bound together.  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.
