Stewart's medicine bears are the most iconic fetish design at Zuni and are highly sought after by serious fetish collectors world wide. Stewart is the son of Ellen and Dixie Quandelacy and born in 1949.

After Naval service in Vietnam, Stewart began carving regularly, starting with stringing fetishes and then progressing to standing fetishes.
