Jewelry : Necklace - Lapis beads, Night Sky Bear pendant : Ervin P Tsosie : NAJ-N17
It's been said that during the winter months, the night sky in the area between the Four Sacred Mountains is the most spectacular site in all of the world. The black sky is filled with more stars than can ever be counted in a lifetime.
Navajo Ervin P Tsosie pulls elements from the Navajo culture -mythical, spiritual, and ceremonial beings are brought to life through his exquisite inlay skills.
In this piece we have a Lapis beaded necklace with turquoise, coral, and other stones of meaning. Beautiful enough to be worn alone, Ervin created this museum quality pendant to accompany it on its life journey.
A bear of the sky is filled with Navajo symbols - Spiderwoman, a male and female yei, a beautiful dual headress. Owners of this piece will appreciate the extra time he took in adorning the bail with yet another yei. This pieces and lines are so fine in this piece that only a gifted artisan could create such works of art.
