Is it a polar bear or a spirit bear?  You get to decide.  Tim Lementino carved this white marble bear and inlaid jet eyes and gave it a black nose.  The bundle has heishi and turquoise beads.  He carved the toes on each of the paws.  It's a good looking bear!

Size: 1.125" H x 2.675" L x .625" W

Is it a polar bear or a spirit bear? You get to choose!  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.
