Lena Boone: #8 Turquoise, Bear

Boone

The choice of #8 turquoise adds significance to the artwork as it is believed to bring good fortune and protection in Native American traditions. Additionally, incorporating a spiny oyster shell arrowhead bundle further symbolizes strength, courage, and ancestral wisdom. Lena Boone's attention to detail and mastery of her craft is evident in the smooth contours of the bear's body and the delicate etchings on the arrowhead bundle. This remarkable piece exemplifies timeless beauty and shows Lena Boone's artistic prowess in preserving and sharing indigenous traditions through her remarkable carvings.

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.
