Stanford Gchachu Zuni - Jewelry - Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico, USA
This signature, elaborate Sun Face design is beautiful. When I see Stanford's pieces, I grab them, I had a wonderful ring (you can see it under Miscellaneous - SOLD). He mixes up his gem stone choices which help make his work stand out.
The Sun Face Kachina is extremely sacred to the Zuni. Portraying a Zuni Kachina in it's totality for anything but closed (to non-Zuni's) religious ceremonies is strictly forbidden. At some point it became acceptable to represent the face only. Since that time, it has become one of the most popular designs in Zuni jewelry.
Stanford is a nephew of well known Zuni jeweler Smokey Gchachu.
