DESCRIPTION:

Enjoy the amazing craftsmanship exhibited in this belt buckle! This piece of Native American jewelry is Hopi overlay hand crafted by artist George Phillips, out of genuine sterling silver. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this belt buckle, the second layer forms an incredible Red Bearded Kachina design that gives the piece a lovely finish. The Red Bearded Kachina is one of the most favored Kachinas among the Hopis. They are appreciated because of the melodious songs and the beautiful dances that they do in the spring. The main purpose of the Angak’china is to bring rain to the people and their crops. Their long hair, which is worn loosely down the back, resembles the falling rain with the eagle breast plumes rising like clouds above it. These kachinas appear in the Niman Ceremony on First Mesa. The Tawa Angak’China has the same functions as the Angak’Cina, the only difference is the color of the beard. The belt buckle is stamped sterling and hallmarked.

    Exquisite craftsmanship. I love my bracelets, have bought several for myself and as gifts. I get a lot of compliments when I wear my pieces. I always find another special piece at Silver Tribe when I'm looking to add to my collection. Just love their jewelry!!

    Love What's Unique
    Posted by John R. | Reviewing SilverTribe.com | Posted on
    I can appreciate anything unique and that's created by the human hand, what talent to be able to do that, and so when it sits in my home I love it all the more. I collect bronzes by Vic Payne & Dustin Payne, and so the Navajo Pottery & Bronzes compliment each other quite beautifully.
