This Brambles Bear must be strong to stand within the brambles!  Carved by Emery Eriacho, the Picasso marble resembles brambles without their leaves in late autumn.  The offering bundle has a spiny oyster arrowhead along with a bead of turquoise and a bead of coral.  This strong bear sees from turquoise eyes.

Size: 1.675" H x 2" 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.
