Agate Bear by Melvin Sandoval

$ 180.00

A San Felipe quarried agate medicine bear carved by Melvin Sandoval -delivered to Sunshine Studio in late May of 2023. The bear is a grayish cream on top, followed by a gray vein, a creamy orange, a burnt sienna vein - then ending with a grayish cream vein near the bear's feet. There is a lovely offering bundle mounted on top with sinew featuring a turquoise arrowhead. Melvin placed six turquoise beads on top of the arrowhead then surrounded the beads with one turquoise and two coral San Felipe hand made heishi beads. Melvin told us his relative Irma Velasquez makes the heishi he uses. Note: Melvin has left one crystalline void on the bear's right back hind leg. The bear is endowed with curative powers, strength, adaptability and courage - powers that can influence both the spiritual and physical realm.
