Every time I visit the Zuni Pueblo I always imagine what it must have been like 500 years ago. When they had an active trade route with the Hopi. It would be something to find that route today and discover the treasures left behind. This cuff is filled with symbols from that ancient past. Plus, a road of coral and turquoise inlay surround the symbols on each side. When you turn this cuff over you will find even more rock art inspired carvings. Navajo artist Philander Begay made this beautiful work of art. Philander is known for his unique pieces. Due to the fact that most of Philander's work draws on his and the Hopi culture I imagine he is quite spiritual. Growing up on a very traditional part of the Navajo Nation and next to Hopi has proven to be the influence for his work. He shares that childhood with us in an interview we have on the site. Make sure you check out the online Trading Post where you will find an excellent selection of Philander's original works.
