Onyx Medicine Bear by Kenric Laiwakete

$ 60.00

A brown umber, orange sienna and muted vermillion colored onyx medicine bear with its nose to the ground carved by Kenric Laiwakete with its face to the ground and turquoise inlaid eyes. Kenric has also added a turquoise healing heart lion to the bear's right side. 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 healing herbs. The Zuni believe the bear is endowed with curative powers, strength, adaptability and courage - powers that can influence both the spiritual and physical realm.
