Lionel Sanchez Owl Fetish

Unlike Zuni carvers who tend to use more formal materials including semi precious stones and mined minerals, Pueblo people have long carved stone fetishes used for ceremonies with common-place rocks often found lying in the open on the stream banks and fields of the Cochiti Pueblo, New Mexico.

As a result, these carvings are more organic and rougher than those of the Zuni or Navajo counterparts giving each piece a distinct look that is equally authentic and collectible.
