Zuni, beautifully handcrafted channelled Inlay Sun Face Pendant. It is made up of mosaic pieces of Turquoise, Mother of Pearl, Onyx and Coral.

The silversmith’s signature is on the reverse.

The Sun face is an important cultural symbol of the Zuni people and represents the Sun Father, one of their three main kachinas or deities.

For the Zuni, the Sun symbolized abundance, continuity, stability, positive energy, hope, happiness, and peace. They associated it with the warmth that made life and growth possible and believed it brought playfulness and joy to children and good fortune and prosperity to families.
