Crow Mother Inlay Pendant, by Sonwai
Crow Mother Cast Silver and Inlay Pendant
Superb artistry with 18k gold overlay, and inlays of gem quality turquoise on hand-cast silver once again highlight Sonwai's vision and Hopi expression.
Crow Mother is completed with her basket - in this case, on her back. She once again arrives from the home of the Kachinas, with the green harvest of bean sprouts and young corn plants, portending a good and essential new growing season. Her fox skin ruff is depicted with fossilized walrus ivory. Her mask includes ebony insets. 18k gold Sunflower and Warrior Twins symbols complete the shawl.
- Pendant length is 3 1/2 inches
- 1 1/2 inches at widest
