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

Chad Quandelacy's exquisite Bear (or Medicine-bear) is titled "Bear Den". We see a glorious corn maiden, wearing a necklace of turquoise, carved out of one dynamic piece of slightly convex spiny oyster shell, permanently presented on a base of jet. We see many incised Dragonfly friends and a flower design with a red coral piece in the center.  The reverse side is an amazing medicine-bear inlaid with a turquoise heartline and eyes. About 2 3/4" tall and 2" long, measurement including base.
