This wonderful bear fetish was made from elk antler. The standing bear features jet inlay eyes. The painted detail and carving on this piece are absolutely stunning! Gabe’s bears are always so animated. This little guy looks at you with a little smile on his face, making you wonder what he has been up to. Although it is unsigned, Gabe has provided a signed certificate of authenticity. His standing bears made from elk antlers are very popular and are highly collectable.
The bear is the guardian fetish of the West. He represents strength and self-knowledge. He is a spiritual guide and carries within him supernatural powers. The bear is a powerful healing fetish
