This brown bear appears to be chuckling and we'd love to know what is so funny! Carved from dolomite, it has big turquoise eyes and a turquoise arrowhead offering bundle. Its tail, paws, and face are well detailed.

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.
