Elements In Balance Bear

By Andres Lementino

This offering is sold.
Andres Lementino is known for inlaying gorgeous Zuni Sunface symbols into his animal carvings, representing the elements in balance. He does so in the stone-to-stone method, an exacting one that takes great precision and skill. Here the Sunface design consists of side by side inlay of mother-of-pearl, jet, turquoise, purple spiny oyster shell and coral, set into a turquoise-eyed marbleĀ Bear (or Medicine-Bear). About 2" long, 3/8" wide and 1 3/4" tall. The soft leather pouch is sold separately and is available here.
