Pig fetish, Picasso marble, by Enrike Leekya
Pig fetish by Enrike Leekya, made of Picasso marble, with inlay turquoise eyes and black marble hooves and nose. It is 2 1/2" long, 1 3/4" tall, and 1 1/4" wide. Colors may vary slightly from photo. This fetish was handmade by Zuni artist Enrike Leekya, a fourth generation Zuni carver in the Leekya Deyuse family.
Pig fetishes are not used in Zuni religious traditions, but they are an example of the carvers' ingenuity, skill, and adaptability.
