This is a mole totem that is made of a unique black and white argite inlaid with turquoise for the heartline and eyes. This totem is a unique style that is only made by Abby Quam. The pointed nose and tail are so nice to feel in the hand and the argite is a naturally heavy stone. Mole totems are great gifts for musicians, storytellers and great listeners.
Mole is the Hunter God of the lower regions. He protects crops from disease at their roots, destroys mice, rats and other small animals that threaten the harvest. He represents awareness and grounding and has the ability to look inward. Mole is a musical totem, most moles are blind or have very small or nearly useless eyes, moles must listen and are considered storytellers and the keepers of the underworld, their blindness heightens their other senses, thus making them a great totem for a musician.

Fetishes represent unique and very personal gifts, they are wonderful for the holidays, as congratulations for life changing events and more.
American Indians have used fetishes throughout history. Fetishes are believed to hold magical powers and protect the owner or craftsmen from problems of mind or body. Some believe that their powers can even protect against problems of the universe. It is also believed that the care a fetish receives is directly related to the protection it will provide. Indians believe that fetishes must be properly cared for. They are given offerings of cornmeal and kept in special turquoise covered fetish pots or pouches. Often fetishes are adorned with turquoise, arrowheads and feathers. These are offerings to the fetish for gifts received or anticipated.
