Umbilical Fetish – Beaded
Umbilical Fetish - BeadedWe offer this reproduction Umbilical Fetish made in a lizard shape. Master Craftsman Andy Bullock created this fetish using Reproduction Seed Beads in Cheyenne Pink, Pony Trader Blue and Cobalt Blue. Clear Green and Clear Red Seed Beads complement them. An assortment of Antique Trade Beads, Hawk Bells, Brass Beads and Cowrie Shells decorate the limbs of the fetish. Andy used Braintanned Deerskin Leather to make the body and the limbs.
Some Native American groups used Umbilical cord fetishes to hold the child's navel cord. They hung the fetish from their cradleboard or attached them to children's clothing. The fetish protected the child from evil influences.
This Umbilical Fetish body measures approx. 5" long x 2.5" at its widest point. It is a unique gift or collectible!
