Animal: Bear, Material: Turquoise
This offering is sold.
The most beautifully shaped Medicine-bear (or Bear) is carved by Stewart Quandelacy from a stunning green turquoise specimen. An alternating turquoise heartline and eyes are set into this approximately 2 1/2" long, 5/8" wide and 2" tall bear with a highly arched back. Stewart's bears have almost become the classic Zuni fetish. His artistry descends through Ellen Quandelacy (d), Stewart's mother, who learned the art of fetish carving from her father Johnny Quam (d).
