Marble Medicine Bear by Herbert Halate

$ 175.00

A large peach, gold and cream colored marble medicine bear with turquoise inlaid eyes and an offering bundle strapped on top of the back with sinew featuring a jet arrowhead with a small turquoise arrow placed on top. Carved by Herbert Halate, the large bear was carved and polished, then Herbert incised images on both sides. The images are modeled after famous petroglyphs that have been found through out the Southwest - even in Zuni. Indigenous people of the Americas created rock art by carving stone or pecking the surface of rocks. They used bones or stone tools to abrade, carve, or scrape images into rock. The bear is endowed with curative powers, strength, adaptability and courage - powers that can influence both the spiritual and physical realm.
