The clouds that arrive in autumn give hints to the rain and snow to come. Alex Tsethlikai carved this badger from turquoise with the palest of blue "clouds" on the back. It has inlaid jet eyes and a gracefully long arrowhead medicine bundle.

In the Zuni tradition badgers are the guardians of the south which is associated with new beginnings. Badgers are diligent and fierce; you would not want to mess with one! They are creatures of both the world underground where their dens are, and the world on Mother Earth’s belly where they live during the day to hunt.
Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal. Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
