One of a Kind piece
Beautiful Zuni brooch-pendant representing a flying mallard (wild duck), overlooking a watering hole and a reed, with a rocky mountain landscape in the background.
The whole scene is made of inlaid turquoises, black-jet, abalone shell and mother of pearl.
This inlaid jewel is impressive by the quality of its details and the diversity of the stones: the water and the mountains are respectively made of Sleeping Beauty turquoise (Arizona) and Blue Diamond turquoise (Nevada), while the stem of the reed and the head of the duck are made of Kingman turquoise (Arizona).
In Native culture, the duck is an inquisitive and persevering animal that looks at the world with joy.
Zuni inlay is a gathering of stones (most often turquoise, coral, mother of pearl and jet), cut and assembled by hand to create a pattern of the artist's choice. The whole is polished for a smooth and elegant look.
Dimensions (H x W): 2 inches 1/8 x 2inches
(5,2cm x 5cm)
