This beautiful spider pin by acclaimed Navajo artist Herbert Ration is a one-of-a-kind piece that showcases the iconic pairing of turquoise and spiny oyster set into sterling silver in a unique way to form this highly detailed piece.
The Southwest is known for the beauty and drama of its landscapes, from red rock canyons and rolling deserts to expansive blue skies and shimmering sunsets. The Native Americans who have lived here for thousands of years have a deep connection to, and respect for, this natural world, and their reverence for nature deeply influences their art. Some of the most common nature-inspired designs and symbols are water, rain, clouds, corn, mountains, and animals. For Native Americans, nature is a gift from the Creator, and in their unique, handcrafted works of art they celebrate this incredible gift.
Measures 3" long by 2" wide. Comes with certificate of authenticity.
