Bear fetish with paw print cut out, by Hiram Peynetsa, black marble
Zuni bear fetish, by Zuni artist Hiram Peynetsa. Made of black marble, with inlay turquoise eyes, and black bear paw print cutout. An interesting and unusual shape, a great display piece for collectors. This one is not signed on the bottom, but we buy directly from the artists so we know who made it.
Measures 2 1/4" tall, 3" wide, and about 3/4" wide.
The bear is one of the most popular fetishes. It is a protective fetish and symbolizes healing, strength, power, courage, and adaptability.
