Celebration of Success Bear

By Hayes Leekya

Animal: Bear, Material: Zuni Travertine
This offering is sold.

As apex predators, Bears are often looked at to indicate the health of an ecosystem. A well fed, fat bear at the end of fall is a cause for celebration, and means that there was enough food to support the bear and other animals in the area through the rest of the year. A hefty amount of fat also means that the bear will survive through the winter. Hayes Leekya's Zuni travertine bear is definitely the epitome of a successful salmon run and the stunning offering bundle on its back is a thanks for the bear's teachings. The bundle is comprised of a spiny oyster point, abalone, and turquoise. This prosperous bear has pen shell eyes and is about 3 1/4" long, 1 3/4" wide, and 2 1/2" tall.
