Georgia Quandelacy's Bear or Medicine-bear is carved of a fabulous specimen of turquoise, and inlaid with a Zuni Sunface symbol on both sides. They're inlaid with both blue and green turquoises, jet, pink mussel shell, mother-of-pearl, and pipestone. The Zuni Sunface design represents the elements in balance. One side of this wonderful bear has an inlaid heartline of pipestone and jet. With sweet eyes of inlaid jet, this bear is almost 2 1/4" long and 1 5/8" tall.
