Dimensions: 2 ¼ to 3 ¾ long. Collection of eight assorted stone animal Zuni hunting fetishes by well-known deceased carver Edna Leki, the daughter of famous Zuni carver Leekya Deyuse.These standing table fetishes appear to be carved from assorted pieces of greenish alabaster and have classic arrowhead hunting bundles tied to their backs. I was told by the person that I bought these fetishes from that they were considered guardian animals and include bear, wolf, fox, and badger varieties.
My starting price is a fraction of this valuation. I do not see any obvious chips or cracks, just natural rock inclusions and color variations.
To my knowledge, Edna rarely signed her fetishes. However, these fetishes display her classic carving techniques and animal shape traits.
