$ 329.99

Really nice bear fetish Hand Carved from Picasso Marble with turquoise inlaid eyes and nostrils with a terrific fetish bundle featuring an orange spiney oyster shell arrowhead and turquoise and red coral nuggets. This bear is flawless with perfect style, flow, proportion and finish. Peter Gasper (deceased, born 1938) and Dinah Gasper (1944) carved together in the traditional style. Dinah, daughter of Edna Leki and the granddaughter of Teddy Weahkee, comes from a strong lineage of Zuni fetish carvers. In the mid-1950s, Peter studied at the Santa Fe Indian School in the field of painting but applied his artistic skills to Zuni fetish carving after he met Dinah. He would go on to teach silversmithing at the Zuni Craftsmen Cooperative Association. Order this museum-quality bear now and own a very important piece of Zuni art history. (the picture below is a recent picture of Dinah) 2 3/4" long- 7/8" thick- 1 1/2" tall. 100% money back satisfaction guarantee. A certificate of authenticity will be included.
