Award-winning artist Philander Begay makes many spectacular pieces. Like many well-known artists his work draws from his experiences. The Navajo culture is filled with ceremonies and the Yei' be Chei' plays a very important role. Not all Yei' be Chei' are the same. You will find ones with very different powers. Philander demonstrates through this cuff how the mask will help the Navajo people identify the powers of the Yei' be Chei'. Each mask is done with inlay stones, an you will find combinations of turquoise, coral and shell. When you turn the cuff over you will find Philander has carved his name into the silver. Philander has begun this new style where he carves the face from turquoise and the look is amazing. The Yei' be' Chei' performs at night and Philander captures that with the 14k gold moon and carved stars. You will appreciate the beauty and meaning of this Philander original.
