Collector Bookstore Notes:

Artisans in the Zuni Pueblo Indian tribe, located in the American Southwest, have been creating ornate silver & mosiac-inlay jewelry since 1872. This reference seeks to help collectors identify authentic Zuni jewelry.

Publishers Description:

This original book delves into the origins and contemporary interpretations of the Knifewing god in Zuni mythology and the sacred being Rainbow Man from ancient Zuni traditions, neither of which is an all-powerful and important Kachina. This thorough study of the subject was undertaken to establish the identities of twenty-eight, mid-20th century and current jewelers who made silver and mosaic inlay pins, bracelets, bolo ties and other ornaments. 168 color photos display subtle variations that indicate a particular master's work and distinctive style. Detailed analysis explains the changes and connections among early and recent makers and their individual styles, materials, and designs.
