Additional Info

Stewart Alonzo is a Navajo Indian carver. His carvings don't qualify as true fetish carvings since this practice is attributed to Zuni Indians.

But, with so many aspects of Native American Indian life, cross-pollination comes into play. Zunis would carve figures , usually of domestic animals, for Navajos. Naturally, Navajo carvers figured they could embrace the tradition too. When the product is something as charming as these two bears , each with a shell "fish" in their muzzles, who could disagree?
