The fish run is about to began. This deer antler carving of a bear waits to see if the salmon will start swimming up stream. Inlaid eyes of Pen-Shell and a necklace of Kingman Turquoise, Afghan Travertine, Mediterranean Coral and Malachite. Claws are inlaid Black Jet pigment and the nose, ears and tail are burnished for color and detail.
