Classic Zuni medicine bear Hand Crafted by legendary Zuni carver Stewart Quandelacy from a lovely orange spiny oyster shell with turquoise inlaid eyes and heart line. 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 the "medicine bear," a highly stylized bear fetish with a zigzag inlaid heartline.
