Marvelita Phillips' small fetish pot hosts four bears carved from either serpentine, cedar, serpentine with augite or onyx. They have jet inlaid eyes and average approximately 3/4" long. Her Bear pot covered in gorgeous crushed turquoise measures about 2" tall, 2 3/4" wide and 2 1/2" deep. The bear shown outside the fetish pot is meant to rest inside along with a cornmeal offering. Marvelita's father was noted carver and jeweler Leonard Halate (d) who started carving in the 1940's. Her brother is Herbert Halate and her son is Brandon Phillips, both wonderful artists as well.
