Gorgeous grey dendritic patterning is seen in this portion of attractive dolomite, layered with blush pink and brick red hues. Zuni elder and artist Lorandina Sheche carved this adorable Bear cub measuring roughly 2" long, 1 1/8" wide and 1 1/2" tall. Big eyes from turquoise are charming and a little etched mouth is so cute. Lorandina's mother Thelma Sheche (d) learned to carve from her father Theodore Kucate (d) by first helping him with the polishing work. He was an early recognized Zuni carver who also led his family in traveling to perform Zuni dances.
