The Sheche family is well-known for taking inspiration from traditional old-style fetishes. Lorandina Sheche'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 Pueblo carver. Lorandina's Bear with expressive turquoise eyes has been carved from a sandstone found at Nutria on the Zuni reservation. Measurements are approximately 4 1/4" long, 7/8" wide and 2" tall.
