Moon Over Sandias Bear

By Lynn & Jayne Quam

Animal: Bear, Material: Rhyolite
This offering is sold.
Working together, Zuni artists Lynn and Jayne Quam created this magnificent Bear (or Medicine-Bear). A night-time mosaic graces one side of the rhyolite carving and look like a moon rising over the Sandia Mountains with the city of Albuquerque below while a shooting star streaks across the sky. The scene is made with select pieces of turquoise, coral, sugilite, spiny oyster shell, and serpentine. The reverse showcases the glorious patterns of the rhyolite stone. The bear sports inlaid eyes of bright blue turquoise and measures roughly 4 1/4" long, 7/8" wide by 3" tall.
