Zuni Crafted Pink Alabaster Water Turtle Fetish

To the Southwest Native American peoples (Navajo, Zuni, Hopi, Santo Domingo Pueblo and others), the turtle represents precious water and is revered in that way. Turtles are popular fetish figures and especially in the southwest where water is a true gift. In Zuni legend, turtles bring fertility and longevity. Medicine bags with turtles associated with them ask similar longevity for their owners and are considered by some to have the ability to defy death. This turtle measures 2 inches long and 1.25 inches wide.

A great addition to any fetish or caved animal collection.
