Getting Better Medicine Bear

By Stewart Quandelacy

Animal: Bear, Material: Turquoise
This offering is sold.
Medicine-bear (or Bear) fetish is carved from the prettiest turquoise specimen by Stewart Quandelacy, about 2 1/2" long, 3/4" wide and 2" tall, with jet inlaid eyes and a red coral alternating heartline. Zuni bear fetishes with a distinct arched back mimic an entrance to a cave. These bears have another medicine in addition to the traditional ones. Bears hibernate in the same cave every year and this annual process is a return for restoration.
