Best Bear Clan

By Vince Chavez

Animal: Bear, Material: Zuni Travertine
This offering is sold.
Vince Chavez comes from the greater Lunasee, Tsethlikai and Chavez family of noted Zuni Pueblo carvers. Vince carves a lot in Zuni travertine, a gorgeously unique variety that's found on the Zuni reservation. Its natural tawny hues serve this happy Bear family well. Etched fur is complimented by both the color and striations within the travertine. A bit of Zuni azurite is seen on the left cheek of the parent as well as the neck area, lovely. The cubs have such a playful spirit! All together, this bear clan measures about 3 3/4" tall, 5" wide and 3 3/4" deep. Endearing eyes are from turquoise inlays.
