Sandstone Medicine Bear Sculpture. $2,500.

Mark Swazo Hinds Large Sandstone Bear Sculpture

This enormous medicine bear by master carver Mark Swazo-Hinds (Tesuque Pueblo) is substantial enough to be displayed on a large coffee table.  A museum-quality showpiece carved of very pale sandstone in a subtle version of the traditional Southwest hump-backed style, he’s more than a foot long and extremely heavy.  He carries a complex medicine bundle crafted in Mark’s own inimitable style, of macaw and turkey feathers, pieces of turquoise, old pottery sherds, and shells, tied on with fabric to keep it secure. The bear is 12″ long by 5-1/8″ high; the bundle extends approximately 6″ beyond the back end of the bear (dimensions approximate).
