Tied to the back of many fetishes are medicine bundles with sinew. Coral in the bundle represents ocean life, blue represents birds, black represents night creatures, brown is earth, and white is winter. Some fetishes have an inlaid stone arrow. It is called a lifeline or a heart line. Beginning at the mouth where breath gives life, it points to the soul where faith and inner strength preside. The arrow that is placed on the fetish is given for protection and good luck. Zuni fetishes are not manufactured nor are they produced on demand. Each carving is a handmade work of art.
