The green serpentine stone is so dark it looks black until one takes a closer look.  It has large inlaid bright blue turquoise eyes, and a beautiful offering bundle with heishi, turquoise, and red coral.  It is signed "FD" on the bottom.

Size: 1.75" x 1.75" x .375"

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.
