Zuni Fetish Carvings and Zuni Necklaces

Zuni Fetishes by Bernard Homer

Bernard Homer Jr and Juana Homer Zuni Fetishes Family

Bernard Homer Sr. (deceased) married Alice Leekya (deceased, daughter of Leekya Deyuse). Bernard Sr. was taught to carve by Leekya Deyuse and remained true to that style throughout his career. The Homer / Leekya style is carried forward today by both Bernard Homer Jr. and his sister Juana Homer. Bernard Sr., Bernard Jr. and Juana Homer carvings are so true Leekya Deyuse’s carvings that it takes a very experienced eye to discern the difference.
