Pot measures approximately 3-7/8" tall, 2" 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 Bear fetish pottery was hand etched with fascinating 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.

    Love turquoise jewelry!
    Posted by LMSouth | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    Having once lived in Arizona, I learned to appreciate fine Southwest artisan craftsmanship and I had been unable to enjoy it since moving to the Southeast. SilverTribe renewed my love of the art and the jewelry. Wonderful jewelry at wonderful prices.
