Incised to the maximum degree for lush fur-effect, then burnt-out for even more textural appeal, is Bart Gasper Jr.'s incredible cottonwood Bear. Various sizes of crushed turquoise pieces are overlaid on either side of this bear, as heartlines. Its eyes are carved and painted. A segment of natural branch red coral is suggestive of a freshly caught fish or other treat, in the mouth of this approximate 3 3/4" long, 1 5/8" wide and 1 1/2" tall fetish.
