Bear fetish by Andres Quandelacy, jet and turquoise
Black bear fetish carving by Andres Quandelacy. The bear is just under 1" tall, 1 5/8" long, and 1/2" wide, made of black jet with inlay turquoise eyes and heart line.
The bear is one of the most popular fetishes. It is a protective fetish and symbolizes healing, strength, power, courage, and adaptability.
The heart line gives the fetish medicinal powers and connects us to the spirit of the animal.
