These carvings have traditionally served a ceremonial purpose for their creators and depict animals and icons integral to their culture. Typical traditional Zuni fetishes depict animals such as the wolf, badger, bear, mountain lion, eagle, mole, frog, deer, ram, and others. Modern carvers many produce images of non-traditional subjects dinosaurs, for example or some insects and reptiles that are traditional but more integral to petroglyphs, symbolism, and the patterns of design in pottery dragonflies, butterflies, water spiders, and lizards for example. Other animals, such as the horse, were carved in the past mainly for trade.
