Native American Zuni Sterling Silver Turquoise Coral MOP Jet Sun Face Inlay Stick Pin
$32.00 This wonderful little piece features a classic sun face design in sterling silver accented with turquoise, coral, MOP, and jet inlay. The stick pin measures about 4" long and the head of the pin is 3/8" by a little over 3/8" wide. The wonderful inlay design sits above the recessed background which is decorated with silver half-beads and rope design. The piece is not marked but tests to Sterling. Wonderful, classic Zuni piece to add to any jewelry collection! Excellent condition but could use a cleaning.. I left it uncleaned to preserve the patina.
For the Zuni, the Sun symbolized abundance, continuity, stability, positive energy, hope, happiness, and peace. They associated it with warmth that made life and growth possible. They believed it brought playfulness and joy to children, and good fortune and prosperity to families. So, praying to the Sun was a critical part of Zuni culture.
