Tim Lementino carved these two white marble bears and wrapped them in heishi and turquoise beads.  Their mouths are open as if they are having a pleasant conversation.  A perfect gift for yourself, your partner, a sibling, or good friend.

Size: 1.5" H x 2" L x 1.375" 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.
