Pig fetish by Ruben Najera, shed antler
Native American Zuni fetish carving of a pig, made of shed antler. It is 1 1/8" long, 3/4" tall, and almost 1" wide. This fetish was handmade by Zuni artist Ruben Najera, and it is signed on the bottom.
Pig fetishes are not used in Zuni religious traditions, but they are an example of the carvers' ingenuity, skill, and adaptability.
