Bears are extraordinarily intelligent, dominant predators with sharp memories and superior navigation skills. They hibernate through torpor to restore themselves. A devoted mother bear grieves deeply if separated from her cubs. Bears have powers that we do not and are revered by Indigenous cultures. Bears are the most prevalent subject of Zuni fetish carvings. By honoring a bear’s traits such as strength, journeying, protection, mothering, hunting and gathering, we can awaken similar attributes within ourselves.
Daphne and Leland Boone's bear carved from an awesome composite of minerals measures approximately 2 3/4" long, 3/4" wide and 2 1/4" tall. It has turquoise eyes and a black lip shell point offering bundle. This fetish can help us recall a bear's outstanding qualities, bringing them out in ourselves.
