This bold medicine bear fetish is hand carved by famed Zuni artist Stewart Quandelacy. The bear is carved from a wildly matrixed piece of Picasso Marble and features Stewarts Signature heartline which he inlaid with Turquoise.
Bear, or "Anshe" as it is said in Zuni, is the principal animal for the Pueblo People and the most prevalent subject of Zuni fetishes, used for healing, protection, and strength.
Stewart Quandelacy comes from a family of well established Fetish Carvers. For over 2 decades, Stewart has been carrying on his family's legacy and has truly developed an intricate style all his own.
