This Bear is small and mighty. And kind of fat! He/she is made of fossilized bryozoan so yes, this Bear is tough and has lasted quite awhile in my collection. Dee Edaakie paid artful attention to this piece of stone and used the different patterning in the stone to subtly delineate the fur coat in back. Dee depicted the bear tilting its head in an inquisitive way as if to say, “What do I smell?” The true blue eyes are of inlaid turquoise. A much treasured bear, measuring about 1 7/8" tall by 1 1/4" wide. This piece is signed by Dee.
