Hello, my name is***** am one of the expert appraisers here at justanswer. I would be happy to help you. Do you have a photo of the piece and if signed a photo of the signature and any other markings. This will help me in my evaluation. Thank you I look forward to helping you.
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
