    so Mz Kat....are you up between acoma and zuni?

    i ask, since the shards you had posted appear to be pueblo pottery...perhaps some greenware...the shards would have been dual color...or tri color...
    { oh..not the above shards...the braided and corrugated pieces}
    the bear is a wonderful fetish...well done...great find...


    P.S. jet, or any shiny black stone, is popular material to use in fetishs'....among the pueblo peoples.

    hey kat,if you find alot of jet just natural look to see what shapes it comes in,i think the early people brought out what was already there if that makes any sense too ya

    Yes, what you said makes sense Jamey, but haven't found any Jet in it's natural state yet. And you're very welcome Americus Thanks for looking!

    acoma pueblo is suspected of being occupied around 800 years...the hopi is supposed to be the oldest occupied pueblo...
    above hopi land, is black mesa...coal...Peabody is still digging coal out of that mountain.
    there was much trade and interaction between the pueblos...
    that is in no way a natural rock...carved fetish...

    fantastic find...

    Thanks for the interesting info. on Acoma P. Pippin. This sweet little bear was probably a trade in some way. I think what Jamey means is that whatever natural shape a piece of Jet came in, the artist would then take advantage of that shape and create something that "flowed" with it...not that it came in a natural bear shape....correct me Jamey if I'm wrong?

    Id have to agree it has been carved. It is not a natural piece. Mother nature is good but not that good. Its a great find Kat.

    love the bear. but I feel bad for the dude who carved it. Think how long that must have taken, especially with no steel!!
    I often feel sorry for people who lived so long ago that they had nothing to do but make us things to collect now. No TV, no satelites, no dvr's.
    They never had a chance to know about the kardashian's, or honey dumb dumb, or housewives of anywhere, or oprah. All they had was nature and living for entertainment. Poor schlubs.
