Bears are known for their healing associations among many pueblo peoples and they are carved the most often by Zuni artists. Bears are highly respected for qualities like strength, mothering, protection, hunting and gathering. Having a carving of such an animal can be a reminder of a similar power that is within ourselves. Daryl Shack Sr.'s Bear has been lovingly carved from an outstanding onyx that displays fascinating crystalline variations. Lab opal inlaid eyes play off the gorgeous textures of the stone. About 2" long, 1" wide and 1 5/8" tall.
