Antler Bear Chief by Troy Sice

$ 3,000.00

A large plump cream & gray streaked antler Comanche bear chief with penn shell inlaid eyes carved and delivered to Sunshine Studio's front porch by Troy Sice in early July of 2020. The bear has a burnished snout as well as burnished feather tips on the Comanche style headdress, adorned with pipestone inlaid zigzags surrounded by five Kingman turquoise and six gold-lip dots. The bear wears a 2 strand necklace composed of 23 Mediterranean coral dots, 5 Kingman Mine turquoise dots & one large azurite/malachite oval shaped pendant. He wears a loin cloth with 3 jet inlaid crosses with a coral bead inlaid to each of the centers on both the front and back. On the edge of both sides of the loin cloth are pipestone zigzags with 5 Kingman mine turquoise dots inlaid to their centers. The chief wears a kilt like a shawl and on the back has jet inlaid triangles with 2 malachite & 2 gold-lip dots. There's a big lapis dot pendant on the back of the bear's head attached to two burnished eagle feathers as well as two big lapis clasps for the headdress on the sides of the face. There is lots to see on this big commanding bear chief; just look at his turquoise and coral encrusted moccasins!
