Fetishes

 

As with many American Indian arts, there were originally many different native sculpture traditions in North America. In the Southwest, Indian sculptors carved small stone figurines in animal, human, and supernatural shapes, usually known as "storytellers" or "fetishes." Some, like Zuni fetishes, were totemic and featured inlaid eyes and heart lines; others, like Navajo storytellers, were strung together into 'fetish necklaces' that served as mnemonics for traditional stories.
