Zuni Fluorite Medicine Bear by Orin Eriacho

$ 80.00

A small glass green, purple, brown and cream colored Zuni quarried fluorite medicine bear carved by Orin Eriacho with pen shell inlaid eyes. Orin added a small offering bundle to the top of the bear's back with sinew featuring two turquoise beads and one branch coral bead with gold-lip heishi surrounding each bead. 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 and courage - powers that can influence both the spiritual and physical realm.
Artist: Orin Eriacho
