The Creation of Fetish Pony™

On my first visit to an Albuquerque, New Mexico art show, I stopped at the Indian Cultural Center in downtown Albuquerque to enjoy the Native American crafts, and was especially taken by Zuni fetishes. I purchased a beautiful bear fetish, and when I held it in my hand, I saw the spirit image inside. The idea of portraying the spirit within the fetish inspired a series of watercolor paintings of animal fetishes with their images inside natural rock patterns, as seen in the many fetish paintings at my web site.

Fetish pony was my first painting on a dimensional surface, and I decided to use the fetish/spirit theme for this piece for The Trail of Painted Ponies. I had help from my Native American friend John Bear, who performed a ceremonial blessing for me to work on my pony, and gave me special beads from his grandmother for the original's power pack.

The special, personalized replica edition features one of 50 signed, first edition replicas. I personally build and hand tie the power packs with sinew. The unique power pack of each piece features natural parrot feathers, rabbit fur, turquoise and beads.
