Thank you for the photos. Fred Begay Jr. is the artist that did the sculpture. His address is Fred Begay Jr P.O. Box 22277 Santa Fe, NM 87502. He is a modern artist and this was to be a bear. It looks to be marble or quartz hard to determine without seeing the piece in hand. There is some damage visible on the side it looks to have a few nicks in the piece. The value would be $200-275.00 for this piece. He is Navajo and not much has been written. He is known for very large outdoor sculptures. Thank you for sharing this and if I may be of further service please let me know
