Nutria Travertine Medicine Bear by Orin Eriacho

$ 100.00

A dark brown Nutria travertine medicine bear with penn shell inlaid eyes carved by Orin Eriacho. Orin has left both sides somewhat rough allowing the cream colored low points to create a visual contrast; creating depth. There is an offering bundle strapped on top with sinew feathering coral and turquoise beads - used by most of the carvers to represent male and female energy, 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 bear is endowed with curative powers, strength, adaptability & courage - powers that can influence both the spiritual & physical realm.
Artist: Orin Eriacho (signed)
Size: 2-3/8 in. long x 5/8 in. wide x 1-5/8 in. tall
