This lovely black jet standing bear has been hand-carved by Zuni Native American, Andres Quandelacy. The younger brother of Stewart Quandelacy, Andres is well known for his small, intricate carvings of horses, mountain lions, buffaloes, and standing bears. Andres' style is unique and readily recognizable. As have the other members of the Quandelacy family, Andres has achieved international acclaim for his carvings, pendants, and fetish necklaces fashioned in the Quandelacy tradition. Andres is credited as the first Zuni carver to place a fish in the mouth of a standing bear. This bear stands 2 3/8" tall and 1 1/8" wide.
