Fred Bowannie: Travertine, Bear

Fred Bowannie: Travertine, Bear


Fred's skillful craftsmanship is evident in the intricate detailing of the bear's fur, showcasing the textures and patterns with astounding realism. The use of travertine, a sedimentary rock known for its soft neutral tones, adds to the overall sense of calmness and tranquility emanating from this carving. Its inviting gaze and relaxed posture create an instant connection with viewers, evoking feelings of warmth and comfort.

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’s hibernation reminds us of the value of going within.
