Classic Stewart Quandelacy medicine bear fetish Hand Carved from angelite with turquoise inlaid eyes and a red coral heart line. Stewart's bears are the most popular fetish at the Zuni Pueblo and they are highly prized by fetish collectors worldwide. Stewart is the son of Ellen and Dixie Quandelacy and was born in 1949. He started carving in grade school, as did most of his brothers and sisters (Andres, Avery, Barlow, Sandra, Dickie, Wilmer, Faye, and Georgia Quandelacy, and Albenita Yunie). After Naval service in Vietnam, Stewart began carving regularly, starting with stringing fetishes and then progressing to standing fetishes. In the 1970s, he originated and subsequently became famous for this "medicine bear," a highly stylized bear fetish with its zigzag inlaid heartline.
