Zuni bear fetishes with an arched back resemble the cave opening where they go to hibernate. Bears do this in the same cave every year and this annual process is a return to restore themselves in all aspects. These bears have another medicine in addition to the traditional ones. An amazing ocean jasper Medicine-bear (or Bear) is carved by Stewart Quandelacy, about 3" long, 1/2" wide and 2 5/8" tall, with turquoise inlaid eyes and a heartline.
