Classic "Old Man Acque" bear fetish Hand Carved from turquoise with a shell arrowhead. Like other carvers of his generation he used a hand-pumped drill, a hand-cranked grinding wheel, rasps and files and shears to chip off pieces of rocks. He avoided using an electric buffing wheel and instead polished fetishes painstakingly on his knee with a greased rag. He was born in 1888 and passed away in 1981 and carved until he had a stroke in the late 1970's shortly before his death. He was a farmer and a well known storyteller and made his living from fetish carving and shepherding and was also a religious leader at the Zuni Pueblo.
