Big mouth bass fetish by Bernie Laselute, lemon jasper
Zuni fetish carving of a big mouth bass, hand carved from lemon jasper, with inlay turquoise eyes. Native American Made. This fetish was handmade by Zuni artist Bernie Laselute, and it is signed on the bottom. Great movement to the fish, very detailed carving, and a funny piece of fisherman humor. The color of the stone is beautiful as well.
Big mouth bass are not a traditional Zuni fetish, but fish in general are an important symbol to the Zuni for their association with water, which is essential for all life on earth.
Measurements: It is 1 1/2" long, 3/4" tall, and 3/4" deep.
