I’m just back from a week in the Four Corners region of the Southwest. I got to attend the annual harvest festival for St. Jerome that is held by the Red Willow People of the Taos Pueblo. One part of the festival is a huge arts and crafts show with Native American artists selling their jewelry, baskets, rugs, and fetishes. I found the perfect fetish there.
This little armadillo is made of Serpentine by Zuni artist Arvella Cheama. I was thrilled to find it.
One thought on “Armadillo Fetishes (figurative and literal)”
