The Rainbow Man Yei is a guarding spirit who represents life-sustaining rains for the agricultural Southwest.  

In this charming pin, Rainbow Man is depicted in his traditional curved pose with his hands held high. Set in sterling silver, his “rainbow stones” range from turquoise, mother of pearl, onyx, shell, and coral. The additional feather carving on the mother of pearl inlays makes this piece extra special.
