Since appearing on the cover of Kent McManus' books, Stewart's medicine Bears have come to be associated as the trademark of Zuni fetishes. And we certainly don't disagree with that! They are carved in a wonderful variety of stones with some slight variation in postures and in a variety of sizes. The other variable would be the heart or breath line, as it appears singly or in multiple lines of differing stones.
This large and very handsome medicine bear is carved of alunite or "wild horse" as it was called by the miner.
It is a very distinctive and popular stone. With dramatic red and white veining or splotches, it was also popular with the carvers.
This traditional medicine bear sports a triple turquoise heartline and turquoise eyes. It is quite large and weighs over 11 ounces.
In typical fashion, Stewart has not signed his bear.
