Product Information

Picasso Marble Bear, 2 1/8" long, 7/8" tall and 3/4" wide, has turquoise inlaid eyes.  Carved by Zuni carver, signed SW.

 The Bear, symbol of strength and wisdom, lightens the weight of emotional burdens.  A solitary beast who lives by his own strength.  By looking within during his regular hibernation he knows his own heart and has insight into the heart of others.  His discrimination helps other see the lessons to be learned.

To Native Americans of the Southwest a fetish is an object in which a spirit dwells.  If treated with proper respect and reverence, the spirit will provide the owner of the fetish with assistance in the form of supernatural power.  Fetish use goes back to prehistoric times.  Among the Zuni there is a legend which tells of a time when all animals were turned to stone by certain gods. (Excerpt from "Southwest Indian Art and Crafts" by Mark Bahti.)
