As a child, as a student and even now crystaline stones have always been my favorite visual objects.
The way light plays through them is kaleidoscopic, magical and as mesmerizing as watching campfires is. The nature contained inside of them and how they were formed was important for me to learn and also to understand the processes that made them. Finding them buried in the ground has always been exciting to me and important too as much of my free time outside of my schoolwork was consumed exploring the subject. Being able to bring Zuni fetishes to the global online marketplace has become my life and brings me incredible joy, happiness and satisfaction, and I have the carvers of Zuni, the Center Place, to thank for it. Elahkwa, my friends.
This is a gorgeous yellow crystaline medicine bear of the North direction produced by one of the more popular carving couples of Zuni. Vernon and Prudencia have a beautifully sleek minimalistic and modern style of carving and this smooth round medicine bear will surely make any of you smile. Awesome light refraction from the structure of the crystal planes dance within the stone.
The eyes are rounded and inlaid of Sleeping Beauty turquoise and the piece is initialed VLPQ Zuni in their typical style.
