Rare snake bone Native American Hopi necklace End of Year BLOWOUT SALE.
I can't find any information on this snake necklace, since there were none like it to be found. A friend of mine took a trip to Arizona and brought this necklace back for me knowing I love unusual pieces. She had bought it on a reservation. That was some 45 years ago. This snake bone necklace is un-dyed and measures 30 inches.
The snake dance is a very sacred ceremony performed by the Hopi tribes in the villages of Shungopavi and Mishongnovi on Second Mesa. The village of Walpi no longer performs the dance. I don't know if this had anything to do with the dance. I did see two contemporary necklaces online some years ago made by the Hopi that were bits of imported python bones, with a majority of the necklace in rock. These were being sold for $275 to $575.
Condition: Very good
