Hard Headed Bear

By Todd Westika

Animal: Bear, Material: Ironwood
This offering is sold.

Ironwood is known to be dense and hard to carve.  However, once formed it is durable, dependable and hard work is rewarded with a beautifully fine grain that polishes with a rich luster. Todd Westika's latest offering is this loyal Bear which carries all the same characteristics of the material from which it is carved. With eyes of inlaid sterling silver and an offering bundle of a turquoise point with sterling silver and red coral beads, it measures almost 2 1/2" long, 3/4" wide and 1 1/2" tall.
