Raven with berry fetish by Calvert Bowannie
Native American Zuni fetish carving of a crow with a berry in its mouth, made of black marble with turquoise inlay eyes and a coral berry. It is 1 3/8" long, 1" wide (wing to wing), and 1 3/8" tall. This fetish was handmade by Zuni artist Calvert Bowannie and is signed on the bottom. Bird fetishes were thought to carry prayers to the sky asking for rain and blessings.
