To Native Americans a fetish is an object in which a spirit dwells. If treated with proper respect and reverence, the spirit will provide the owner of the fetish with assistance in the form of supernatural power. A Bear symbolizes great strength, power and healing, a spiritual guide. This little bear is 1 3/4" tall, and 3/4" thick. He holds a carved turquoise 'fish' in his mouth. The tiny bear also has inlaid turquoise eyes. He was hand-carved by Zuni artist, Andres Quam.
