Javelina fetish, Picasso marble, by Bernie Laselute
Javelina fetishes by Bernie Laselute, made of Picasso marble with inlay turquoise eyes. The larger one is 3/4" tall, 2" long, and 3/4" wide. The smaller one is 5/8" tall, 1 3/4" long and 1/2" wide. This is his representation of the southwestern Javelina. Colors vary from photos.
Javelinas are not used in Zuni religious ceremonies, but they are one of the animals from around the world that Zuni fetish carvers make, to showcase their creativity, ingenuity, and skill.
