Utah Sandstone Medicine Bear by Darrell Westika - Zuni Fetish

$ 54.00

A peach, burnt sienna and maroon veined Utah sandstone; sometimes called wonderstone by the artists - medicine bear carved by Darrell Westika with turquoise inlaid eyes. A simple offering bundle has been strapped to the top of the carving with sinew - featuring four turquoise beads. The medicine bear shape is thought to resemble a cave opening - depicting a bear coming out of hibernation & the pose is the bear sniffing the ground for healing herbs. The Zuni believe the bear is endowed with curative powers, strength, adaptability & courage - powers that can influence both the spiritual & physical realm.
