Onyx Medicine Bear by Shannon Calavasa

$ 95.00

A cream, muted peach and gray veined onyx medicine bear with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Shannon Calavasa. Shannon has inlaid a raised turquoise and jet heart line to the center of the bear's back. She has also incised the bear's left side with decorative motifs. 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.
