Medium small smiling, dancing bear.  Can only stand on left foot.  These never fail to please.  Click on Claudia's name, above to see anything else that might be posted.

Claudia is best known for her Corn Maidens, happy or dancing Bears, and Frogs.

Bears are among the most important animals to all Native Americans and have a special place in the Zuni fetish tradition.  Both physically and spiritually, they are considered very powerful. The Zuni name for bear is "clumsy foot" most likely due to their somewhat odd gait.
