Every once in a while a great find comes our way and this is one of the best in a long time. Neil Natewa,Sr. (d.) was the uncle of Staley Natewa(d.) and carved a lot of fetishes in jet. This a very large old-style mountain lion fetish measuring 4 1/2 inches long and weighing in at 4.4 ounces! This is our first Neil fetish up for sale here at Zuni Spirits and we were ecstatic to find it. We acquired it from a long time trader of impeccable reputation. We are absolutely confident as to the provenance of the piece.

The tail is up and over the back in typical old style manner. The eyes are inlaid of Sleeping Beauty turquoise and the heartline-breathlin is inlaid of a mixture of blue turquoises. As was common in the early days of retail fetish carving the piece is unsigned. It is an extraordinary and rare piece that comes along once in a collecting lifetime, so speak now or forever hold your peace.
