Is it a polar bear or a spirit bear?  You get to decide.  Tim Lementino carved this white marble bear, inlaid jet eyes and gave it a black nose.  He carved the toes on each of the paws. 

Size: 1.1975" H x 1" L x .75" 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.
