Navajo Horse Hair Pottery Fetish 2.75" - Bear (nap437)
This lovely horsehair bear figure is a high quality piece of authentic Native American, Navajo pottery, also known as a fetish or spirit animal. Real horse hair is used by the pottery artists to creat the unique look only found in horsehair pottery. When the time is just right, the artist throws the pieces of horse hair onto the hot pottery which causes it to stick and melt into the piece. This fascinating technique leads to a permanent application of the horse hair onto the pottery and creates the exquisite look that everyone loves.
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 and very unique of art.
Actual piece is shown, measures approximately 1.75" tall, 2.75" wide.
