Skunk fetish by Bremette Epaloose
Skunk fetish by Zuni artist Bremette Epaloose, made of black marble, with incised markings. It measures 2 1/4" long, just over 1" tall, and 5/8" wide. Artist's name is signed on the bottom. Skunk carvings are not used in Zuni religious traditions, but the artists like to carve all different animals as a challenge, and as an example of the carvers' ingenuity, skill, and adaptability.
