This sterling silver statement cuff dates back to the 1980s, a handcrafted vintage piece featuring a traditional Zuni Rainbow Man dancer, flanked by long raised sterling silver leaves.
We have to admit, we’re a little partial to the Rainbow Man. Though this yei is very important to the Zuni people, a guardian spirit looked to for providing life-sustaining rain, you have to admit that his likeness is pretty whimsical-looking! Like most Zuni inlay pieces, the Rainbow Man is colorful – the typical turquoise, red coral, onyx or jet, mother of pearl, and occasional accent of shell – and that, in conjunction with his traditional curved posed with his hands in the air, just (for the lack of a better term) makes him appear fun.
