In black marble, this fierce horned toad was carved by Russell Shack, Zuni. The hand carved etching on his head, back and tail shows great detail. He has inlaid turquoise eyes. A horned toad represents longevity, and self-reliance. If the owner of a fetish does not believe that a spirit resides in it, it doesn't, and it is only a pretty or interesting stone carving. If the owner does believe that a spirit resides in it, then he cares for that fetish with respect and honor, knowing that in doing so, the fetish will protect and help him. This little fella is 2" long, 1 1/2" wide, and 3/4" tall. He is signed on the bottom with the artist's name and the word 'Zuni'. Each item made by Native Americans is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
