Claudio Peina Dancing Bear Fetish

Claudia Peina is a well know Zuni fetish carver specializing in carving Zuni bears and corn maidens mostly from antler. She learned the art of carving antler bear fetishes from her late brother, Colvin Peina. Over the years, Claudia has created numerous unique images – warrior maiden, ‘Hopi’ maiden, olla maidens, grinding woman, bread maker, bow priest, corn maidens and even haloed angels.  She is also well-known for her variety of bears. Claudia’s images exhibit happiness, freedom and carefreeness, all a reflection of her own personality and the love for her Zuni tribe.
