Fordite Medicine Bear Fetish Zuni Indian Animal Carving

Fordite Medicine Bear Fetish

Item #
$ 186.99

Eye-catching medicine bear Hand Carved from a colorful specimen of Fordite with jet inlaid eyes. Anshe (Zuni for bear) are associated with strength, introspection, self-knowledge, healing, lightening of emotional burdens, and the power of the soul. Fordite, also known as Detroit agate or Motor agate is old automotive paint which has hardened sufficiently to be cut and polished. It was formed from the build-up of layers of enamel paint slag on tracks and skids on which cars were hand spray-painted (now an automated process), which have been baked numerous times. Enterprising workers who recognized their potential value chipped off these waste products and saved them to be turned into jewelry or Zuni fetishes.  Order this striking bear now and experience the magic of owning a Zuni Fordite medicine bear fetish! Signed Brian Yatsattie. 1 3/4" wide- 1 5/8" tall- 7/16" thick (base). 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee.
