Medicine Bear For Strength

By Stewart Quandelacy

Animal: Bear, Material: Lapis Lazuli
This offering is sold.
An engaging lapis lazuli Medicine-bear (or Bear) is carved by Stewart Quandelacy, measuring approximately 2 1/4" long, 1/2" wide and 1 3/4" tall. Gorgeous inlay work showcases an alternating heartline and eyes from turquoise. 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.
