We welcome Elise Westika's to Keshi's website with her adorably carved cottonwood Bear
cub. Elise is the daughter of carver Cheryl Beyuka and Elvis Westika.
This little bear has fur detail that's been incised with an exacto knife. Its eyes, nose and "Keshi", the traditional Zuni greeting meaning hello and welcome, are burnt out for wonderful detail. Elise also attached a nice turquoise nugget offering necklace. About 3 7/8" tall, 3" long and 2 1/8" deep, measurements include the base.
