Claudia Peina's Bear
is happy a new year is upon us all. Carved from nicely polished antler, this pen shell eyed sweetie is approximately 3 1/4" tall, 1 5/8" wide and 3/4" deep. Paws are gorgeously inlaid with jet. Claudia descends from the greater George Cheechee Haloo (d) family of Zuni artists. Her uncle Miguel Haloo (d) initiated the well-known standing bear style associated with this family. Her brother was Colvin Peina (d) and her half-brothers Troy Sice and Gabriel Sice continue to produce incredible fetishes.
