VERY VERY RARE vintage Native American handmade fetish necklace by one of the most sought-after Zuni fetish carvers is David Tsikewa, arguably second only to Leekya Deyuse.. If you appreciate truly great Zuni work of the C. G. Wallace era, then this is the fetish necklace for you. We purchased this from a collection in Santa Fe, NM. The collection had many beautiful fetish necklaces including Leekya and this stunning signed David Tsekewa.
