Zuni Fetish Carvings and Zuni Necklaces

Zuni Fetish Mountain Lions

Both Zuni fetish Mountain Lions and Zuni Fetish Bobcats are strong

hunting fetishes. The Zuni fetish Mountain Lion is the elder
 brother of all other protective and hunting 
Zuni fetish animals. 

Zuni fetish Mountain Lions are carried to insure a successful hunt
 and protect the hunter.

Zuni fetish Mountain Lions were first (and still) carved with their tail
 forming a straight ridge along their back.  Now they are also
 seen with their tail over their back and down the side 
of their body (Andres Quandelacy) and 
with their tail behind them.

Zuni fetish Bobcat carvings are easily recognized with their 
protruding whiskers and bobbed tail. 
They are rarely carved.
