This white marble bear by Lance Deysee definitely has an attitude and looks like it is saying, "High five me!". It has a fancy bundle of turquosie, a serpentine & jet piece inlaid with mother of pearl, and turquoise and heishi beads. We think it's pretty cool!
Size: 2.5" H x 1.5" 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.
