Mini Navajo Horse Hair Pottery Figure - Fetish Bear (3bc666)
This charming horsehair figurine, a high-quality piece of authentic Native American, Navajo pottery, is also known as a fetish or spirit animal. Navajo horsehair pottery artists use real horsehair during the firing process to decorate the rustic figure.
When the time is just right, the artist throws the pieces of horsehair onto the pottery, allowing it to stick and melt into the piece. This fascinating technique leads to a permanent application of the horsehair onto the pottery and creates the famous look that collectors enjoy.
The design featured on the bear figure is etched by hand. Each piece is unique; no two are exactly alike. This hand etched piece would be a perfect accent for any southwestern, lodge style, or cabin decor. It also makes a great gift because it is a beautiful one-of-a-kind work of art.
Actual bear is shown, measures approximately 2.75" long, 2" tall.
