Wild Horse Rock Medicine Bear by Andres Lementino

$ 75.00

A white, brown umber, gray and dark maroon colored wild horse rock medicine bear with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Andres Lementino. Andres has added one of his signature Zuni sun faces to the bear's left side - utilizing bits of turquoise, clam shell, jet and striking apple coral sun rays. Note: Andres has cleverly inlaid a turquoise dot to the left of the sunface - apparently to fill a void. The sun face is an ancient symbol in Zuni culture, representing the sacred Sun Father. The symbol's round motif depicts the sun with a forehead split down the middle to reflect the eternal balance between sunrise and sunset. The medicine bear shape is thought to resemble a cave opening - depicting a bear coming out of hibernation and the pose is the bear sniffing the ground for herbs. The bear is endowed with curative powers, strength, adaptability and courage - powers that can influence both the spiritual and physical realm.
