Multi-pairs of Sun Face lapidaries for which the Zuni are famous, all lined up across the platform of this CORAL dominated bracelet. This configuration is unusual and somewhat unique. Also unique are the full round bars that form the shank. Normally, for cost purposes, the silversmith uses a half round. But this one is in full round wire adding strength and beauty. Has a great, early “feel.”
The Sun Face is an important symbol for the Zuni Pueblo as it’s considered the most important star in the Universe. Without the sun, there would be no crops or life. The split in their face represents morning sunrise and evening sunset.
