Pot measures approximately 3-7/8" tall, 2-3/8" wide, and is 5-5/8" long (front to back).

This beautiful style of Navajo art is called horse hair pottery because actual horse hair is added to the pottery at just the right moment in the firing process to melt the hairs into the pottery, creating unique and incredible designs. This striking Bear fetish pottery was hand etched with fabulous traditonal patterns by Navajo artist Tom Vail Jr. 

In Native American beliefs, the bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper".

Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of its appeal and beauty.

    Such Fine Work
    Posted by Jean P. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I am so very pleased with my recent transaction with Silver Tribe. I purchased a Navajo sterling silver turquoise cuff bracelet fashioned by Henry Attakai. The price was reasonable, the shipping swift. When I un-boxed the item my first reaction was, “Wow! How beautiful! Wow!” Not hyperbole. These were my literal words. His work is outstanding. Stunning. Can I covet something I already own? I have had the pleasure of shopping for Native American art works in the Southwest, visiting traders, museum stores and Native run shops from the Hopi Mesas to the Zuni lands. I’ve seen and purchased beautiful pieces. This gorgeous work of jewelry counts among them. I highly recommend Silver Tribe. They trade in the real thing. I will be looking to buy from them again.

    I love everything I've gotten so far. The color of the stones are true to what you see online. I've been matching up to pieces that I've gotten else ware and they matched perfect.
