Sonoran Sunrise Medicine Bear by Donovan Laiwakete

A copper blue Sonoran Sunrise medicine bear with dark red/brown cuprite veins and jet inlaid eyes carved by Donovan Laiwakete. Donovan has added a simple bundle to the top of the back with sinew featuring turquoise beads and melon shell heishi. 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.
