A small Zapotec, Mexican quarried turquoise medicine bear with coral inlaid eyes carved by Leland Boone and Daphne Quam. Daphne has added a pink mussel shell heart shaped arrowhead to the top of the bear's back with sinew, placing two turquoise beads above it. 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 bear is endowed with curative powers, strength, adaptability & courage - powers that can influence both the spiritual & physical realm.
