Krytonite Medicine Bear by Kenric Laiwakete

$ 96.00

A krytonite medicine bear with its nose to the ground and jet inlaid eyes carved by Kenric Laiwakete - delivered to Sunshine Studio's front porch in August of 2020. Kenric has attached a lovely offering bundle to the top of the bear's back with sinew featuring a penn shell arrowhead one turquoise bead and penn shell heishie. We don't know if this stone is man made but it has LED capabilities - it will light up in less than one minute and will shine for about an hour, we are told. 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.
