Utah Sandstone Medicine Bear by Leland Boone and Daphne Quam

$ 105.00

A plump peach, burnt sienna and maroon veined Utah sandstone carved Medicine bear with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by the couple Leland Boone and Daphne Quam. Daphne has added her heart shaped arrowhead to the top of the carving with sinew - this time using a gold-lip mother-of-pearl shell. 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.
