Marked As Special Bear

By Salvador Romero, Cochiti

Animal: Bear, Material: Found Stone
This offering is sold.

Salvador Romero's forward moving Bear is carved of a gorgeous found stone, about 4 1/4" long, 1 1/4" wide, and 2 1/2" tall. Salvador walks the land at Cochiti Pueblo to locate the right stones for his carvings. He says “The stone has the animal in it. I just find it." This stone has a pink inclusion that Salvador cleverly carved to be a patch behind the right ear.
