Evalena Boone descends from the important Teddy Weahkee (d) family of Zuni Pueblo. Evalena's mother is Lena Boone, and her grandmother was Edna Leki (d). Their contributions to early traditional and old-style fetish carving and fetish necklace artistry are enormous. Evalena's gorgeously rounded Bear has turquoise eyes set into an amazing Purisima fossil stone. Remnants of ancient mollusks, gastropods, crab fragments and barnacles can be found in Purisima stones. A curved pink mussel shell point offering bundle hugs the back of this approximate 3 1/4" long, 1 3/4" wide and 3" tall fossil bear beautifully.
