This little black marble bear by Reynold Lunasee is looking up at the sky. Maybe it is making wish on a falling star? Reynold inlaid turquoise eyes and textured the fur around the neck and shoulders. What a little cutie!
Size: 1.375" H x 1.25" 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.
