One of a Kind piece
Hopi silver ring representing a Kachina Long Hair.
This silver ring is made with the Overlay technique.
This process is composed of two flat pieces of the same size, nested one on the other. The one on top is cut with a pattern and acts as a "stencil". It is applied to the bottom one, creating a silver background. This background is oxidized and scraped to create contrast between the two pieces.
The artist has created here the portrait of Kachina Long Hair.
The Kachinas are embodiments of the spiritual form, they are supernatural beings who make the link with the divine. During certain ceremonies, they appear to the Natives while dancing and singing, in physical forms mixing animal features and abstract figures.
Dimensions (L x W) : 2,8cm x 2cm
(1 inch 1/8 x 0.3/4 inch)
This ring is in sterling silver.
Proudly handmade in the USA.
