This bear either wears some clever camouflage or has eaten so much honey that it's starting to take on traits of a bee. A generous specimen of bumblebee jasper makes for an excellent Bear by Brian Yatsattie, a collectible and prolific carver. Bumblebee jasper comes from the volcano Mount Papandayan in Indonesia. The yellow color of the stone comes from sulfur deposits which makes this carving smell faintly of matches. This friendly bear has turquoise inlaid eyes and measure bout 3 1/4" long, 1" wide, and 1 1/2" tall.
Eddington Hannaweeke's charming Bear is carved of one rich specimen of Picasso marble. This red coral-eyed playful creature stands at about 1 1/2" tall, 7/8" wide and 7/8" deep. It wears a jersey incised with '66' so perhaps this is a sporty bear or a guitar-playing bear, we love it.
Fabian Homer brings us a beautiful Eagle carved from a colorful Pacific green snail shell. As you turn the piece a Bear emerges, with big eyes of inlaid mother of pearl shell and jet. Fabian used the natural contours of the shell for the nose of the bear and the head of the eagle. The piece measures about 2 1/4" wide by 2" tall and 2" deep.
Veronica Poblano is from the greater Teddy Weahkee family of carvers. Her father was noted and iconic Zuni carver Leo Poblano, nephew of Teddy Weahkee.
Her latest offering is this absolutely fabulous and affectionally named "Mama Bear" carved of the prettiest piece of carnelian, about 2 1/4" long, 1" wide and 1 3/8" tall, with eyes of turquoise. This exquisite bear's offering bundle consists of Kingman turquoise, citrine, fresh water pearl and pink coral beads. This collectible Bear fetish comes with Veronica's sterling silver signature label attached.
A highly-collectible and museum-quality collection of animals, making up Ray Tsalate's set representing the Six Directions that Zuni Pueblo people recognize. They assign an animal and a color to each.
Ray's inspiration came from old traditional pottery designs, bringing an "old-style" feeling to each animal. They are masterfully carved of antler. Wolf is 2 1/2" long, 1" wide and 1 1/4" tall, with mother-of-pearl inlay and pen shell eyes. Mountain Lion is 2 1/2" long, 7/8" wide and 1 1/8" tall, with gold lip shell inlay and malachite eyes. Eagle measures 2" long, 1" wide and 1" tall, with lapis, malachite, mother-of-pearl and gold lip shell inlay, plus red coral eyes. Badger is 1 5/8" long, 1 1/4" wide and 1 1/8" tall, with coral inlay and jet eyes. Mole is 1 3/8" long, 1 1/8" wide and 1" tall, with pen shell inlay and variscite eyes. Bear is 2" long, 1 1/8" wide and 1 1/8" tall, with turquoise inlay and turquoise eyes.
