Classic medicine bear fetish Hand Carved from a stellar specimen of high-grade chrysocolla with cuprite inclusions and red coral heart line and jet eyes. Stewart's medicine bears are the most famous fetish design at Zuni and a must-have for any good fetish collection. 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 a zigzag inlaid heartline.
