Rickson Kallestewa's approximate 2 1/2" long, 1 1/4" wide and 2 1/2" deep (measurements include base), work shows a whimsical standing Bear
with an offering jar etched with a rain cloud element, a Hummingbird
or perhaps a Dragonfly
, and other designs. They are filled in with colored paste. The sweet bear has a raised paw, plus its facial features and claws are incised and darkened with jet paste. This unique alabaster carving reflects Rickson's special artistic aesthetic.
