Paula says - "This amazing bear was living in a fossil for eons until these talented Zuni artists 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!!

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. Read more about fetishes.

Indian Bear Symbolism

Bear is considered the most powerful of all of the animals and is one of the most popular subjects of fetish carvers. Bear is a spiritual guide and represents strength and self-knowledge. He also has supernatural powers, great healing powers. Bear is a symbol deliberate action, introspection, soul and insight for the past and the future. The Bear is the guardian of the West an is one of the animals of the Six Directions.

What are Orthoceras?

Orthoceras were the earliest recognizable animals and were able to swim and crawl. Orthoceras ranged in size from a few inches to over six feet long. When they died, their shells fell to the ocean floor and over the years minerals replaced the animals' organic matter turning them to stone.

What is Wabi-Sabi?

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.
