These two Picasso marble bears in love were carved by Ed Lementino. They have inlaid turquoise eyes. They are bundled together with clam shell heishi and turquoise. It is so sweet how their faces are turned to one another!

Bears are the guardians of the western gate in Zuni Pueblo. They are associated with healing at all levels, protection, and a reminder to restore oneself during the winter months. In some traditions a part of the bear is rubbed all over infants to imbue them with power, strength, and good health.
Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal. Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
