Paula says -

"This amazing bear was living in the stone with this fossil seashell for eons until Clayton and Abby Quam Panteah saw it and brought it out!

"Fetishes carved from ancient fossils will often show fissures and cracks. Sometimes the fossil is so fragile that when being carved, the rock splits partially or completely across. In a few cases the pieces have been reunited which adds to their wabi-sabi. After all, these specimens are millions of years old!!

Wabi-sabi is the art of finding beauty in imperfection, of accepting natural growth, decay, and death. It reveres authenticity above all else. Wabi-sabi celebrates cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time, weather, and loving use leave behind. It reminds us that we are all but transient beings on this planet-that our bodies as well as the material world around us are in the process of returning to the dust from which we came.
