A jovial Bear smiles wide through an incised mouth, while turquoise inlaid eyes show a sweetness. Carved from lapis lazuli by Frankie Poblano Chattin, he attached a truly exquisite offering bundle composed of beads like black coral, turquoise, natural branch red coral, spiny oyster shell, quartz crystal and a faceted Danburite crystal. Said to enhance mental acuity and aide in a positive connection between one's mind and heart, Danburite is a highly vibrational mineral. It was first verified in 1839 by Charles Shepard in Danbury, Connecticut. Nowadays, Danburite is found in other locales around the world.
The matrix portion of this lapis lazuli shows off this approximate 3 1/2" long, 2" wide and 2 1/4" tall bear's backside in an adorable way. Frankie Poblano Chattin comes from the greater Teddy Weahkee (d) family of Zuni artists. His parents are well-known jewelers and carvers Jovanna Poblano and Daniel Chattin.
Veronica Poblano's artistic Zuni lineage is important. Her father, iconic Zuni carver Leo Poblano (d) was the nephew of Teddy Weahkee (d). Their enormous contribution to Zuni fetish carving and jewelry continues with Veronica and her daughter Jovanna Poblano.
Permanently perched on a gorgeously carved black lip shell leaf, with crushed turquoise and a few bits of red coral, is this amazing feathered friend of stichtite. Veronica inlaid its lovely wings with turquoise and lapis. Friendly turquoise eyes take in the view, while a flat crest of feathers on its head is overlaid pen shell. About 2 1/4" long, 1" wide and 1 1/8" tall.
