As we well know, beavers are very industrious creatures.  They cut down trees with their teeth and drag them to the water to make their dens.  They are creatures of the land and the water who have devised a way to birth their babies under water but still stay dry.  Put this carving where you will see it if you would like to be inspired to mobilized to action.

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.
