A contemporary fetish artist noted especially for his impossibly delicate insect carvings in fossil ivory. Here, he brings the same gifts of precise detail and accurate observation to a turtle fetish. One solid block of alabaster is cut away to form a nicely detailed turtle, resting on a rock formation at the side of the river. Turtles are signs of good fortune for Pueblo Indians, especially the Zuni, dry farmers dependent on rainfall. With this handsome fellow, translucent and delicate in coloration, you will certainly have good fortune, if you are lucky enough to give him a new home.
