Fred Bowannie Jr. is from the greater Natewa, Dallas Quam (d) and Panteah extended family of Zuni artists. His relatives include carvers Bryston and Calvert Bowannie. Fred's Bears
are beloved the world over. Great polishing work brings about an opaque luster in this angelite specimen. Pen shell eyes exude a friendliness, also conveyed through this bear's slightly turned head. The most vibrant blue turquoise point is joined by a medley of beads in the fabulous offering bundle attached to this approximate 3 1/2" long, 1 3/8" wide and 2 1/2" tall fetish.
