Alternating Heartline Medicine Bear

By Douglas Martza

Animal: Bear, Material: Onyx
This offering is sold.
The heartline is a visual representation of the animal’s breath and has its origins in the creation story of both the first fetishes and the first A:Shiwi (Zuni) people. Douglas Martza's gorgeously carved onyx Medicine-Bear has an alternating heartline or breath path from turquoise. The natural sage green, red earth and sunny orange striations are amazing. Eyes are from turquoise as well. About 2 3/4" long, 7/8" wide and 2 1/2" tall.
