Claudia Peina - Native American - Zuni Fetish Carver

Instead of Claudia's photo I thought I'd show a sampling of her fabulously popular happy, singing, and dancing bear fetishes.

She is also well known for her Corn Maiden's.

Her younger half-brother, Troy is an extremely well know carver of the happy bears.   Honestly I'm not sure who came up with the idea first.  Troy's work tends to be much more expensive.  Thankfully Claudia's work is accessible by those of us who don't drive Lamborghini's.  

The above photo has proven quite popular on my Face Book site. These specific pieces are sold but I have more (many unposted).
