Belt buckle BK59
- The Originals
One of a Kind piece
Incredible 4 elements horse belt buckle in the shape of a horse head.
This Zuni horse belt buckle is made of sterling silver and inlaid with Sleeping Beauty turquoise (Arizona), jet, coral, tiger cowrie shell (which can be recognized by its brown dots on a cream background) and grey mother-of-pearl.
The whole gives a stunning inlay work, a jewelry technique in which Zuni artists excel. This belt buckle is more specifically a "channel inlay" : a process of marquetry where the hand-cut stones are compartmentalized by small silver bars. On this piece, the artist has composed geometric patterns on the tip and the loops, but the masterpiece is of course the buckle itself, meticulously representing the profile of a beautiful horse.
The horse is an iconic animal of the American West, a symbol of travel, freedom and earthly strength.
