Alabaster Bear With Offering Jar

By Rickson Kallestewa

Animal: Bear, Material: Alabaster
This offering is sold.

Rickson Kallestewa's carvings are whimsical, different and simply fabulous! His latest creation is this alabaster Bear holding an offering jar between the front paws. The 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. The bear wears a single pink mussels shell arrow point while the offering jar holds a single seed offering; a special feature on some of Rickson's pieces. The bear carving is from a single piece of alabaster and measures about 4" long, 1 1/2" wide by 2" tall.
