In the early days of the Zuni culture, a carving such as this Mountain Goat would have been used as a hunting talisman. Inanimate objects, especially those that looked like something that might help sustain you, were considered to be closer to deity. To protect and nourish such a thing with blue corn meal and pollen shows honor and respect. When it came time to ask special consideration of such an object, the guardian was in a much better position to receive those wants and needs. Master Zuni fetish artist Derrick Kaamasee carved this wonderful crag climber of elk antler.
