Quilted Fetish Bears

These are called fetish bears or Zuni bears.  I don't know which one (or both?) is correct.  After blending the wood and malachite designs, they were passed through a pasta machine and cut into squares.  I chose each individual square for exactly the right spots on the bears.  (I don't slop anything together.  That's why I'll never make a fortune doing this stuff.  I work too slowly.)
I made a tool to do the embossing or quilting.
