Rickson Kallestewa's carvings are whimsical, different and simply fabulous! He offers us this alabaster Bear holding an offering jar, featuring rain clouds and flute players, between the front paws. Rickson has honored the spirit of this bear with the gift of a precious melon seed tied to its back. This delightful bear has jet inlaid eyes with facial and claw details darkened with jet. The reddish brown decorations on the jar are darkened using pipestone paste. About 2 1/2" long, 1 1/4" wide, and 2 1/4" tall.
