This agate bear is one of the first attempts by Priscilla Lasiloo and Stewart Quandelacy to incorporate inlay of different colorful stones and shells (malachite, bumblebee jasper, sodalite, red coral, orange spiny oyster shell, azurite, and charoite) into the natural fissures of the agate. It is masterfully done with a perfectly smooth finish on both sides. Priscilla and Stewart graciously donated this bear to TKF, the proceeds going directly to our work in Zuni. Priscilla and Stewart are known for their “medicine” bears with impeccable inlaid heartlines. Their pieces are enjoyed by collectors as well as people new to Zuni carvings. The shape of this bear is evocative of the entrance to the cave which Bear returns to year after year to hibernate. This act is regarded with honor and respect by the A:Shiwi (Zuni People). This stunning large carving measures 3 1/2 inches wide and 3 1/4 inches tall. $800. No Tax. Free Shipping in the USA.
