Quartz Medicine Bear by Fernando Laiwakete

$ 85.00

A big cream, gray and crystalline sparkling quart medicine bear with turquoise inlaid eyes and healing heart line carved by Fernando Laiwakete. Fernando has added one of his elaborate offering bundles featuring a dark mother-of-pearl arrowhead with a gold-lip mother-of-pearl bird placed at its center - surrounded by turquoise, clam, sodalite and penn shell beads with melon shell heishi. 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.
