Stanford & Geraldine Gchachu, Zuni
Gorgeous medium-large statement-piece pendant/pin in Stanford's signature design.
The second photo is under direct bright light to provide an alternate view. Chain is not included.
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.
I continue to acquire Stanford and Geraldine's work whenever and where-ever I can find it.
Please check the dimensions - the photos are extreme close-ups.
