Navajo jeweler, Roger Pino, carved this bear from dolomite, and inlaid a bright blue heartline.  The color of the dolomite is a faded mauve, with darker vertical lines, and pale yellow around the face...very soothing.  Roger inlaid turquoise eyes.  The setting is sterling silver. 

Size: 1.75" H x 2.5" x .375" 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.
