Animal: Bear, Material: Serpentine
This offering is sold.
Bear is the guardian and protector of the west. Lorandina Sheche carved this old style bear from a beautiful serpentine with lots of variations and inclusions. On its back Lorandina had tied a gift bundle of turquoise, red coral, and a point of pen shell. The eyes are inlaid turquoise. We love its little bear ears and full face. About 1 3/4" tall and 3" long.
