Afghan Travertine Bear

By Priscilla Lasiloo

Animal: Bear, Material: Afghan Travertine
This offering is sold.
Carved of lovely Afghan travertine, this strong Bear has a colorful offering bundle of red coral, a black lip shell point and turquoise. Offering bundles are given in thanks by the carver to the animal for what they teach us. Bears are the most prevalent subject of Zuni fetishes, as a bear's medicine brings reminders of strength, healing and journeying, among other amiable qualities. This wonderful fetish with turquoise inlaid eyes is by Priscilla Lasiloo, and comes in at about 2" long, 1/2" wide and 1 1/2" tall.
