Stewart Quandelacy medicine bear fetish with turquoise inlaid eyes and heart line Hand Carved from Sonoran Sunrise Jasper. 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 this "medicine bear," a highly stylized bear fetish with a zigzag inlaid heartline.  Aside from being a master fetish carver, he is also a rancher, he is very humble and likes to avoid the limelight. Order this rare museum-quality medicine bear fetish now and own a real piece of Zuni art history. ( The material this bear is carved from has a natural fissure at the end of the heartline, look carefully to be sure this is ok with you). 2 3/8" wide- 2 1/8" tall- 3/8" thick. 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee.
