The success of Knife Wing figures was closely followed by stone mosaics of the Rainbow Man, another being from Zuni traditional stories. Like its recently established predecessor, the Knife Wing, Rainbow Man quickly appeared as jewelry and on boxes. Reproduced at various levels of complexity, the Rainbow Man dances amid gathering storm clouds.
