Travertine Medicine Bear by Melvin Sandoval

$ 125.00

A muted olive green, tan and white veined travertine medicine bear carved by Melvin Sandoval with an arrowhead placed on top of the back with sinew featuring four turquoise beads surrounded by melon shell heishi. Melvin left a tan color on the bear's left side that he feels is a bear cub; thus, it would seem to symbolize the bear's inner child. 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: Melvin Sandoval (signed)
