In the Zuni way, a standing or upright Bear
is regarded as displaying strength and healing. Brian Yatsattie's bear has been carved from lively variscite, which is a mineral in the turquoise family. It's said to energize the brain because of its incredible color. Etched paw details and the cutest face is inlaid with jet eyes. Brian is a wonderful and prolific carver, his works are quite collectible. About 2 1/4" long, 1 1/4" wide and 1 1/2" deep.
