Alvino Nastacio: Tagua Nut, Bear

Alvino Nastacio: Tagua Nut, Bear


First things first, tagua nut is actually an ivory-like substance found inside the seeds of certain palm trees. It's a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to elephant ivory, so major bonus points for that! Now, about the carving itself - it's truly incredible. The level of detail is astounding, from the intricately carved fur to the lifelike facial expression. 

Bear (Anshe): Bear was the principal animal for the Pueblo People and they are the most prevalent subject of Zuni fetishes. Bear fetishes are used for healing, protection, strength, journeying, mothering, hunting and gathering. Bear‚ hibernation reminds us of the value of going within.
