An Adorable Etched Black Marble Zuni Sitting Bear Fetish by Georgette Lunasee. Unlike the traditional Zuni Bear, he sits in a mini, compact pose, with paws hugging across his chest. Indeed, Lunasee’s interpretation resembles more closely a Koala Bear than a Mountain Bear.
This little man is somewhat cartoon in style and sitting squatly, looks slightly over to one side- as though ready to smile at a friendly passer- by. The body of the Bear is finished to a high gloss and areas of concentrated etching are used to add a lifelike texture and shape to the piece.
