Antler Dancing Bear by Troy Sice

$ 1,300.00

A new style honey bear carved by Troy Sice - delivered to Sunshine Studio's front porch in February of 2022. The bear can balance on either foot with lapis inlaid eyes, burnished snout, tail,ear tips and jet inlaid claws. The bear wears an eleven dot coral and ten dot turquoise double strand necklace with one lapis pendant. The bear wears a kilt like a cloak with a gold-lip and dark penn shell band running along the bottom edge and jet inlaid honeycomb. The honeycomb is a wax mass of hexagonal; six-sided cells built by honey bees with wax secreted from special abdominal glands. The pièce de résistance are the four gold-lip and penn shell inlaid honey bees inlaid to the back of the kilt as well as the 12 K silver gold inlaid dots. The Zuni believe the bear is endowed with curative powers, strength, adaptability & courage - powers that can influence both the spiritual & physical realm.
