Zuni fetish. Unique piece.
Beautiful bear sculpted in spiny oyster with its eyes in Sleeping Beauty turquoise (Arizona).
The artist has meticulously carved this bear to create the detail of its fur and has inserted a small piece of turquoise carefully made in the shape of a salmon into its mouth.
In Native culture, the bear is symbol of power, strenght, health and knowledge.
Dimensions in (H x L x w) : 2,4cm x 4,1cm x 1cm
(1 inch x 1 inch 5/8 inches x 0 inch 3/8)
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.
