Bernard Laiwekate: Mother of Pearl, Bear

Bernard Laiwekate: Mother of Pearl, Bear


The translucent nature of the material creates an ethereal effect as light dances upon its surface, bringing the intricately crafted details to life. Each stroke of the carver's hand has left its mark, capturing the strength and majesty of this magnificent creature. From the gentle curve of its body to every tuft of fur meticulously etched into existence, it is clear that this work exemplifies true craftsmanship and artistry. 

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.
