Carved from a very striking piece of Picasso Marble.
This bear is so lovable that he reminds me of my husband so I named him Honey Bear.
He is sweet and strong. He has wonderful inset eyes that really show his personality.
Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Honey Bear- Zuni Bear Table Fetish
Carved by Zuni artist Louise Ponchuella.
What is a Fetish? A fetish is a rock carving of an animal that captures the spirit and the essence of the animal, not necessarily its exact detailed conformation. A double fetish represents relationship and unity. Read more about fetishes.
Bear. The bear is a symbol of strength and deliberate action, introspection, soul and insight for the past and the future.
Medicine Bundle. Many fetishes have a medicine bundle, offering bundle, or adornment tied on the back of the animal that can consists of coral seed beads, shell heishi, feathers and other stone pieces. These may be used as an offering to the fetish, to evoke the spirit of the fetish or to increase the strength of a fetish.

colors such as gray, brown and black and with seemingly randomly oriented transecting
black veinlets. Much of Picasso Marble comes from Utah.
