Cheryl Beyuka,  Zuni Pueblo, NM

Handsome blue bear from Cheryl.  It is new, not pre-owned. It was carved and purchased in 2017.

To the Zuni, the bear is the second most powerful animal (mountain lion is #1).  In the category of Protective and Healing animals, the bear protects the westerly direction.  Blue is the color of elder brother bear.  A white bear is said to have curative properties.

Remember to check the dimensions-the photos are extreme close-ups 
The photos are often MUCH larger than the actual piece
