Antler Medicine Bear by Raymond Tsalate - Zuni Fetish

$ 1,200.00

A fantastic medicine bear with round lapis inlaid eyes carved by Ray Tsalate and delivered to Sunshine Studio in May of 2022. The bear is carved in a piece of antler that is cream colored on one side and porous black and gray on the opposite side. Finally there is fantastic offering bundle wrapped around the girth with sinew supporting two turquoise, two large pink Japanese coral and one Mediterranean branch coral bead. Pen shell heishi surrounds the the five elaborate beads. The medicine bear shape is thought to resemble a cave opening - depicting a bear coming out of hibernation and 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.
