Claudia Peina carved this dancing jet bear.  She carved the fingers and toes, and a cute little tail.  It is perfectly balanced to stand on one leg!  She inlaid turquoise eyes, two turquoise dots and two red coral dots around its neck, and a turquoise dot and red coral dot in the front.  It cannot be any more joyous!

Size: 2,5" H x 1.5" L x .375" W

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.
