Rickson Kallestewa is recognized for his off-beat and original carving style. We're adoring his bears carved of one nice specimen of alabaster. We see papa Bear holding a drum and wearing a carved point offering of found stone. Bear cub is happily holding on to mother bear. All the bear's eyes, paws and claws are incised and inlaid with jet. Between them is an offering jar that's incised with flute-playing creatures, a Zuni Sunface symbol and a raincloud element. The Sunface symbol represents the elements in balance. About 4 1/8" long, 1 1/4" deep and 2" tall.
