This offering is sold.
Bears can stand upright in nature perhaps to see, smell or hear something. A standing bear is considered a sign of strength and healing by the Zuni Pueblo people. Andrew Quam's turquoise-eyed bear carved from shimmering mother-of-pearl is vertical in posture on a base of crushed turquoise which represents water, and mother-of-pearl. All together, this jet clawed bear or polar bear is about 1 1/2" tall, 1 3/8" wide and 3/4" deep.
