This offering is sold.
Stewart Quandelacy carved this Medicine-bear from a beautiful specimen of Kona Dolomite, which can only be found in the Kona Hills south of Marquette County, Michigan. Kona Dolomite contains remains of algae (stromatolites) which are some of the oldest fossils found in the world, dating back to 2.1 billion years. With inlaid eyes and jagged heartline of turquoise, this strong yet soothing carving measures almost 2 1/2" long and 2" tall.
