Prudencia Quam and Vernon Lunasee carved this Lavender Resting Bear from creamy translucent flourite.  It is such a soothing posture and color that it may help you restore yourself.  Its face and paws are detailed, and it looks out of serene inlaid turquoise eyes.

Size: 1.675" H x 1.75" L x 1" 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.
