Reindeer fetish by Bryston Bowannie
Zuni reindeer fetish, made of tan marble with darker brown veins. It is 2 1/2" tall, 1 1/8" long, and 3/4" wide. This fetish was handmade by Zuni artist Bryston Bowannie and is signed with his initials on the bottom.
Deer and other large horned animals are a game animal to the Zuni, and these fetishes are carved to help in hunting these animals for food and clothing.
