To the Navajo people, a bear is not just a bear. Along with Snake, Bear was a guardian of Changing Woman, whose job it was to make certain the ultimate female was protected at all cost. When Changing Woman hooked up with Tsohanoai, the Navajo Sun God, she discovered that guardians were no longer be needed. The Sun is the most powerful and ominous being in the entire culture, no one would dare mess with her Highness now. So, Changing Woman did what a kind and loving mother would, she transferred the protective power of the Bear to the People, her people. To this day, the bear is considered a champion of the Navajo. Through his skill as a silversmith, Robert Taylor has done a fantastic job of representing this cultural tale in sterling silver.
