This chubby travertine bear by Delving Leekya is adorable!  It has inlaid turquoise eyes and a sweet smile on it's mouth.  It has a beautifully carved mother of pearl arrowhead, with a smaller pink mussel shell on top for the bundle.  It is very substantial and feels very good in the hand.

Size: 2" H x 3.25" L x 1.5" 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.
