We imagine that this golden badger carries its stories around on its back. Every color a memory of something to teach the youngers how to live in a good way. Navajo carver, Jayne Quam, is the maker, and is married to Zuni carver, Lynn Quam. The stone is honey calcite with beautiful inlay that includes turquoise, shell, abalone, azurite, and serpentine.

In the Zuni tradition badgers are the guardians of the south which is associated with new beginnings. 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.
