Purisima, Crawstone ( Limestone with Embedded Shells, Baja California, Mexico) Medicine Bear by Burt Awelagte

$ 90.00

A grayish green and cream/tan purisima medicine bear with turquoise inlaid eyes and lots of embedded shells, creating movement in the stone. The bear was carved by Burt Awelagte and has one of his lovely offering bundle circling the girth with sinew; featuring penn & melon shell heishi, turquoise beads and one keshi pearl at the center - a non-nucleated pearl typically formed as a by-product of pearl cultivation. 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.
