Benson Ration was born in 1953 and learned to become a master silversmith from his father. He is a highly respected craftsmen who honors his unique heritage. This is Benson’s interpretation of a mudhead kachina. It is sterling silver with oxidized detailing and a large oval turquoise stone along one side. The mudhead kachina is an entertainer who brings joy and laughter as well as serious thoughts of hope and health and discourages disgraceful actions/activities. This sterling silver piece measures 1 1/4” wide and 3” high. It has a curved joyful movement to it. It is most certainly a Bension Ration piece although it does not bear his B.R. hoof print signature. It is in very good to excellent condition.
