This offering is sold.
Fabian Homer's wonderful serpentine Bear exudes an understated strength. The soft green stone is polished but still retains some of its natural texture. The bear is accented by dark eyes of jet and an abalone shell point topped off with turquoise for added protection. The bear measures about 2" long, 3/4" wide by 1 5/8" tall. Bear (Anshe) is a principal animal for the Pueblo People and they are the most prevalent subject of Zuni fetishes.
