Beaver fetish by Corwin Yamutewa, natural turquoise
Beaver Zuni fetish by Corwin Yamutewa, made of natural turquoise, with inlay coral eyes. It is 2" long, 3/4" tall, and 5/8" wide. It is signed on the bottom "C.Y. Zuni '19". It's made of a nice piece of turquoise with a lot of matrix, and it's very well carved, with a cute face.
The artist Corwin Yamutewa is a firefighter and he only carves in the off season, so he doesn't produce as many fetishes, making his carvings more valuable.
Beavers represent a strong sense of family and home, they are builders and the keepers of the waterways.
