Details

This enchanting Native American handmade Fish Rock serpentine and turquoise table fetish was hand carved by Zuni Pueblo artist Enrike (pronounced N-Rick) Leekya evokes the image of a Billy Goat. The fetish lends its vigor, strength, endurance, and intelligence to its owner. A hardy domesticated ruminant animal that has backward curving horns and (in the male) a beard. It is kept for its milk and meat and is noted for its lively and frisky behavior. Goats also lend their fertility to their owners. White is the color of the East and healing. Turquoise eyes, hooves and horns add to the power of this fetish. Remember that each time this fetish performs its function it will grow 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 their power. A certificate of authenticity is included. Enrike Leekya is the Great Grandson of famed Zuni carver Leekya Deyuse. His work is highly collectible. As with most members of his family, whimsy plays a huge part in their artistic expression. Look for his pieces to have an element of fun.
