Stunning Zuni sterling and multi stone inlay Sunface brooch/pin/pendant and earrings set by highly collectible BURDIAN SOSEEAH. Earrings measure 3/4", the pin/pedant is 1" wide by 2" long. The set weighs about 17 grams.
The Sunface is an important cultural symbol of the Zuni people and represents the Sun Father. For the Zuni, the Sun symbolized abundance, continuity, stability, positive energy, hope, happiness, and peace. They associated it with warmth that made life and growth possible. They believed it brought playfulness and joy to children, and good fortune and prosperity to families. So, praying to the Sun was a critical part of Zuni culture.
Stunning, unique Zuni ring to add to an jewelry collection!
