This offering is sold.
So happy, Claudia Peina's antler Bear dances in excitement and joy. Pen shell eyes look skyward and an inlaid turquoise necklace is given to this approximate 2" tall, 1 3/4" wide and 1/2" deep fetish. Intricately inlaid jet paws and claws, plus a wide smile are lovely. Claudia is from the greater George Cheechee Haloo (d) family of Zuni artists. Her uncle Miguel Haloo (d) initiated the well-known standing bear style associated with this family. Her brother was Colvin Peina (d) and her half-brothers Troy Sice and Gabriel Sice continue to produce wonderful fetishes.
