Marble wolf pair fetish carving by Jayne Quam (Zuni)

The wolf is one of the 6 protective and healing animals as well as one of the 6 hunting and prey animals and is the protector of the east. "Wolf fetishes are used by many Pueblo tribes. They have very strong hunting powers and may be carried by Zuni hunters when antelope or some larger game are the prey." Zuni Fetishes and Carvings by Kent McManis. In this instance, the paired carving is meant to symbolize love and devotion as wolves normally mate for life.
