The Zuni associate the badger with boldness, perseverance and individuality. He is the protective animal of the South. It is the badger who helps the medicine men and shamans dig up the roots and herbs that are needed in healing. This wonderfully veined Picasso marble badger has bright turquoise eyes and a row of turquoise inlaid down the back of his spine.
