Clay Elk Fetish From The Taos Pueblo

Item: 1205

Origin: Taos pueblo
Date: Late 19th to early 20th century

Media: clay

Dimensions: 5.75″ by 2″ by 3.25″

Description: This elk was likely related to the relationship between the hunter and the hunted and was perhaps used as a fetish to represent this  connection.  I believe the clay has been fired, as the coloration on the surface does not come off easily.

Condition:  Condition is very good with surface wear.
