This little bear fetish may be small, but it seems mighty!  Zuni carver, Jeff Eriacho, inlaid bright blue turquoise eyes and carved a tiny arrowhead for the bundle.  The stone is beautiful with rivers of white quartz running through it.

Size: .875" H x 1.675" L x .675" 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.
