This offering is sold.

Stewart Quandelacy's Medicine Bear (or Bear) brings a sense of keen perception to any circumstance. It's been carved from pipestone, also known as catlinite, which is actually a fossilized clay. Its deep reddish color and texture has made it a prized material to carve ceremonial pipes. Turquoise inlaid eyes and an alternating heartline are seen in this approximate 2" long, 1/2" wide and 2" tall fetish.
