A pocket size white marble medicine bear fetish with turquoise inlaid eyes, carved by Andres Lementino with a Zuni sun face on the bear's left side composed of gold-lip inlaid 'sun rays' & turquoise,spiny oyster, jet and abalone shell inlaid face. To the Zuni, the Sun face represents prosperity, happiness, peace, hope, optimism, and positive energy. The medicine bear shape is thought to resemble a cave opening - depicting a bear coming out of hibernation & the pose suggests that the bear is sniffing the ground for healing herbs.
