White Marble Kermode Bear by Herbert Him - Zuni Fetish

$ 210.00

A white marble Kermode spirit bear with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Herbert Him standing upright on its hind legs. Herbert has incised fur all over the bear's body and has carved the front legs in a flexing pose as he looks at the viewer with expressive turquoise blue inlaid eyes. Kermode bears can be found almost exclusively in the Great Bear Rain forest - in particular, two islands — Princess Royal Island and Gribbell Island. Kermodes are white because of a recessive gene. Both parents must be carrying the gene for a cub to have white fur. Their entire coat is white, from the roots to the tips of their hair, however, they have dark eyes and noses just like black-coated black bears. The pure white coloration of the spirit bear represents a clean spirit, one that has been cleansed of pain and anger. The white fur of the Spirit bear symbolizes peace, purity, strength, endurance and determination.
