$ 214.99

Awesome Zuni medicine bear fetish Hand Carved by legendary Zuni carver Stewart Quandelacy from a mystery rock with turquoise inlaid heart line and eyes. Stewart's medicine bears are the most iconic fetish design at Zuni and are highly sought after by serious fetish collectors worldwide. Stewart is the son of Ellen and Dixie Quandelacy and 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," this highly stylized bear fetish with its zigzag inlaid heartline. Stewart is a rancher and a very private man who likes to avoid the spotlight and prefers to let his wife Priscilla Lasiloo deal with the financial aspects of his art. Order this historically important work of art now and discover the magic of owning a Stewart Quandelacy medicine bear fetish. 2 1/4" wide- 2" tall- 1/4" thick (base). 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee.
