Picasso Marble Medicine Bear by Adriana Quam

$ 95.00

A large lean gray, tan, brown and black veined Picasso marble medicine bear with its nose to the ground and turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Adriana Quam - a new artist for Sunshine Studio. We have been told that she learned to carve from Michael Mahooty whom she once shared a relationship with. The medicine bear has a small offering bundle strapped on top with sinew featuring a penn shell arrowhead. 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.
Artist: Adriana Quam (signed)
Size: 3-3/4 in. long x 5/8 in. wide x 3-1/8 in. tall
