Here is a beautifully carved Sodalite Zuni Bear Fetish by Artist Ronnie Lunasee. The Black Stone is Marbled with Deep Blues and Browns.
In the Zuni Culture, the Bear is the strongest mediator between Man and the Creator. Because of the Bear's cyclical nature, he is believed to aid in changes and transitions in life.
Ronnie Lunasee has been Carving Fetishes since the mid-1980's. He is known for his style which is realistic but not heavily detailed.
