This medicine bear has many things going for it. It has the matrix "bark" of the Mother-of-pearl shell integrated into the surface of the gold-lipped side. Also on that same side Stewart has inlaid a piece of Sleeping Beatuy turquoise and a piece of red coral into the surface of the medicine bear, though it is a puzzling practice that has not been seen before. The white side of the bear is inlaid with a Sleeping Beauty heartline/breathline, which is the trademark of the Zuni medicine bear design. It has been the iconic symbol of fetish carving and has endearded Stewart to the fetish collecting community over the years.

The eyes are inlaid of Sleeping Beauty turquoise as well. The fetish is initialed SQ Zuni which is a recent habit of both carver and family of late. This would make a really great pocket/purse fetish and has the white bear healing quality going for it too!
