Herbert Davis
3” tall x 5” wide x 1 1/4” long

This wonderfully carved Zuni fetish was created from a gorgeous piece of strawberry alabaster. The piece was made by well-known and sought after carver, Herbert Davis. As of late, Herbert has been adding small turquoise eyes and coral tongues to his animal pieces that really bring them to life; these bears are no exception. The piece depicts two fighting wild bears. The bear, revered as the symbol of strength in the fetish world and are often conjured in times of need. This piece depicts the spirit of the bear and the willingness to fight. The fetish has a lovely discoloration on one side that makes the piece even more unique. It is a beautiful and enchanting fetish sculpture.
