Vintage Zuni Silver Rainbow Man Pin with Multi-Stone Inlay of Shell, Turquoise and Jet
With an array of traditional silver buttons and classic stampwork framing the multi-stone inlay of natural turquoise, spondylus, mother of pearl, and jet, this vintage Zuni rainbow man pin is a powerfully unique accessory.
The Rainbow Man is a sacred Zuni guardian spirit identified with the life giving Summer rains and the colors associated after the rains. One of the first figures used in traditional Zuni mosaic inlay, it is often seen on war shields as a symbol of protection.
