Striking in appearance and strong in form, Bernard Laiwakete's mighty Bear with turquoise eyes, is carved from a slightly curved abalone. One side is a wash with iridescent colors, while the reverse is textural, loaded with inviting red and orange hues. Three turquoise heartlines, which represent the breath, are carefully inlaid into this roughly 4" long, 3/4" wide and 2 1/4" tall bear.
