Monkey fetish by Enrike Leekya
Monkey with banana Zuni fetish by Enrike Leekya, made of Picasso marble, with inlay turquoise eyes, and a mother of pearl banana. It is 2 1/2" tall, and 2 5/8" long and about 1 1/8" wide at the widest part. Very cute fetish, and a very unusual animal to see in a Zuni fetish.
Monkeys 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.
