This beautiful Zuni Kachina pendant is carved from pale pink abalone shell. The Kachina wears a headdress and robe, its features and the details of its clothing are enhanced with tiny inlaid turquoise and onyx gems. The back of the figure is carved with a (currently) unidentified makers mark consisting of two intersecting "V"s. The pendant has a sterling jump ring bale and hangs from a modern sterling silver cable chain. Circa 1980.

A Kachina is an ancestral spirit of the Pueblo Indians. There are more than 500 of these spirits, and they act as intermediaries between humans and the gods.

Details.....The chain is 16" long and the pendant measures 0.48" by 1.95". In Very Good Vintage Condition. You should expect some wear on all vintage and antique jewels, we consider it part of their charm.
