Otter fetish with shell by Karen Zunie
Otter Zuni fetish, made of reddish brown marble, with inlay turquoise eyes, and holding a shell made from mother of pearl. It is 1 3/4" long, 1 1/4" tall, and 3/4" wide. Handmade by artist Karen Zunie, and signed on the bottom. The otter is floating on its back and holding a seashell. It is carved beautifully with a lot of details and a playful pose.
Otters are thought to be playful and entertaining, and they represent laughter and curiosity.
