Zuni fetish. Unique piece.
Beautiful bear carved in pipestone and serpentine with Sleeping Beauty turquoise (Arizona) eyes. We can see a couple of turquoise nuggets and on a pink mother-of-pearl arrow knotted on its back thanks to a tendon strand, to get more power and protection.
The bear symbolizes strength, health and knowledge.
Dimensions (H x L x l) : 5,2cm x 5,3cm x 1,6cm
(2 inches 1/8 x 2 inches 1/8 x 0.5/8 inch)
In a time when the Zuni tribe lived from agriculture and hunting, the hunters couldn't do without these amulets and would never forget to bring them during their expeditions. The fetishes assure benevolence of the soul.
Each animal represents its spirit, its own inner force and protects its owner.
Proudly handmade in the USA.
