Fordite Standing Bear Fetish Zuni Indian Paint Animal Carving

Fordite Standing Bear Fetish

Item #
$ 279.99

Eye-catching standing bear hand Carved from a colorful specimen of Fordite with jet inlaid eyes.  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 pleasure of owning a Zuni Fordite bear fetish. Signed Brian Yatsattie. 2" tall- 1 3/8" wide (base)- 5/8" deep (base). 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee.
