Debra Gasper, Zuni Fetish Carver
I love everything about this bear. The shape is great and the material is so unique. The side with the inclusions looks like it has floating clouds .
Debra Gasper is part of the Teddy Weeahkee lineage. She is the daughter of Dinah & Peter (Sr) Gasper.
If you are interested in learning more about fetishes, I strongly suggest both Kent McManis's and Mark Bahti's books, both can be had at Amazon
