Herbert Halate carved this bear from white marble and inlaid bright blue turquoise eyes.  The fur is detailed, and the offering bundle has a bright blue turquoise tied on the back.  It feels very good in the hand.

Size: 1.5" H x 2.75" 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.
