White bear fetish by Corwin Yamutewa, white marble
Bear fetish by Corwin Yamutewa, made of white marble with inlay jet. The fetish is 1 1/5" tall, 2 5/8" long, and about 1" deep. The artist Corwin Yamutewa is a firefighter and he only carves in the off season, so he doesn't produce as many fetishes, making his carvings more valuable.
The bear is a protective fetish and symbolizes healing, strength, power, courage, and adaptability.
