Moles are underground creatures who hold a special place for many Native Americans as guardians of Mother Earth. Some of them can barely see, yet they navigate their way through the dark earth with great skill. They can be helpful for assisting in understanding our own deep internal landscape. Currently seen by many people as pests, they have the important role of keeping the underground aerated and lived undisturbed for hundreds of thousands of years before humans arrived.
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.
