Leonard Halate (d) told Jim Ostler (d), “The Fetish Carvers of Zuni” Ostler and Rodee, that he was carving fetishes in the 40’s. With his unique style and materials, Leonard became widely collected in the 1980’s. He used wood, nails, bird claws, antler, and all kinds of different materials to make his singular carvings. This stone bear is small but its charisma is very large with Leonard’s typically primitive inlaid turquoise eyes and red coral nostrils. Its turquoise prayer bundle is almost as tall as the bear. It would make a wonderful addition to a serious or whimsical collection. Measures 1 3/8 inches long and over 5/8 inches tall, with the offering on top an additional 3/8 inches tall. $215. No Tax.
