Zuni carver, Herbert Halate, carved this white marble bear and gave it inlaid turquoise eyes.  The bundle is an elongated turquoise stone.  It is simply sweet!

Size: .875" H x 2.25" 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.
