Herbert Him: White Marble, Bison/Bear


A stunning carving that stops you in your tracks. The carving features both a majestic bear and a powerful buffalo, entwined seamlessly in intricate detail. As you gaze at this work of art, you can't help but marvel at the lifelike textures and expressions carved into the stone. The bear exudes strength and grace, while the buffalo emanates a sense of wild determination. 

Bison (Si:wolo) is especially important to the Plains Indians. These magnificent animals were the basis of their lifeway before they were hunted to extinction by the white man. While not a traditional fetish subject for the Zunis, all animals have meaning and Bison reminds us of abundance and prayer.  

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.
