This fantastic United States Indian handmade onyx, turquoise, and jet Mountain Lion Fetish was hand carved by Zuni Pueblo artist Mike Mahooty. Sky Puma is a multicolored fetish of the air. He is a beautiful combination of reds, browns, black and white. Mountain lions are considered to be the most powerful hunting fetish. His tail arches over his back in keeping with traditional fetish carving. The bundle on his back contains a jet arrow head (evoking lightening), two shell heishi (for the sea) and a turquoise bead (for the sky). Inlay turquoise eyes add to give a glimpse to his connection with the sky. Sky Puma spends his time flying high, giving strength, good health, and protection to all he sees. This fetish will help you find what you are looking for. Many believe that onyx brings increased vigor, strength, stamina, and self control. It alleviates worry, tension, and nervousness and eliminates confusion and nightmares. It is used to provide glimpses of that which is ‘beyond’ and activates one’s memory of one’s roots and reality. Medicinal applications include the treatment of bone marrow diseases, teeth, foot, blood and bone problems, and soft tissue disorders. It is also believed to aid in ailments such as epilepsy or glaucoma and is known to have powers to rectify damage done to cells. Remember that each time this fetish protects or heals you it grows in power. It will never fail a person with good intentions who is true of heart. Providing a comfortable home for and making small offerings of food to your new fetish will also increase its power. A signed certificate of authenticity is included with this piece.
