Bunny rabbit fetishes by Corwin Yamutewa
Zuni rabbit fetishes, hand-carved by Zuni artist Corwin Yamutewa, made of white marble, with inlay coral eyes and inlay shell for the nose and ears. Both are signed on the bottom. Rabbit A is on all fours, and it is 1" tall, 7/8" wide and 1 1/2" long. Rabbit B is standing on hind legs, and it is 1 1/2" tall, 1 1/2" long, and 1/2" wide. The pads of its front feet are visible, and those are made of inlay shell. Very cute bunnies, like Corwin Yamutewa is known for.
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.
Rabbits are a fertility symbol to the Zuni, they represent abundance and facing fears.
