Tim Lemontino carved this polar bear who appears to be seeing far into the distance.  We wonder what it sees?  It is carved from translucent onyx with a black jet nose and bight blue turquoise eyes.  The claws are detailed.

Size: 1.675" H x .75" L x .5" 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.
