Ammonite Zuni Bear Fetish by Kenric Laiwekete

Product Description

Artist Kenric Laiwekete uses Ammonite to carve this unique Zuni Bear Fetish. An uncommon Zuni material; Ammonite is an index fossil formed from extinct marine animals. Ammonites vary greatly in the ornamentation of their shells and this particular one is smooth and constant in color, except for the striking growth lines branching from its central core. Laiwekete is known for his commanding use of fossil in Fetish Carving and this Zuni Bear demonstrates strength and protection in his arresting color, material and pattern. Contrasting turquoise heartlines finish the piece and are in keeping with the traditional Zuni style. Dimensions: 2.25'' H x 2.75'' L x 0.75'' W.
