This Zuni Bear Fetish by Donovan Laiwakete is a unique, exciting piece with a contemporary feel. Donovan is from the Laiwakete family of carvers who are united by a well defined, distinct and highly stylized aesthetic. Many people fall in love with the Laiwakete's joyful, contrastive play of colors in the materials they choose. The Chocolate Serpentine used is characterized by the thin deep brown stripes throughout. Donovan's vivid heartlines and multi-colored fetish bundle further contribute to the uncommon effect of the Chocolate Serpentine. The Zuni Bear is considered the most powerful of all of the animals and symbolizes deliberate action, introspection, soul and insight for the past and the future. The traditional yet surprising effect of Laiwaketes' piece draws together this linear past and future. Dimensions: 2.25'' H x 4.125'' L x 1'' W.
