Smooth As Silk Bear

By Herbert Halate

Animal: Bear, Material: Alabaster
This offering is sold.
Beloved Zuni fetish carver Herbert Halate learned to carve by watching his father Leonard Halate (d) when he was eleven or twelve years of age. He started out working in shell then graduated to other materials like jet. His latest offering is a journeying Bear sculpted from a lovely specimen of alabaster. The smoothness of the surface is the quality Herbert seeks, which is evident in all of his wonderful fetishes. Large eyes and an offering bundle are from turquoise. About 3" long, 1 1/2" wide and 1 3/8" tall.
