The sweet smile on this bear's face says it all!  Delvin Leekya carved it from travertine and inlaid turquoise eyes.  The offering bundle is shimmering mother of pearl arrowhead with a shimmering pink mussel shell on top.  "DL" is carved on the back left leg.

Size: 2" H x 3" L x 1.5" 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.
