Description
 
This beautiful knifewing figure was created by well-known Zuni artist Frank Vacit. Set with materials of Blue Gem turquoise, jet, Mother of Pearl and coral. This lovely bolo offers the best of Vacit's work, with his distinct mosaic inlay designs of Zuni figures set in a silver background. The tips are also inlaid. A soft patina graces the entire piece, with the back having a heavy patina. It measures 2 3/8" long by 1 5/8" wide. The tips are 3/4" long by 5/8" wide. The black leather strap is 37" total length. Not hallmarked.

The Shalako are the Godís messengers and run back and forth all year long carrying messages, as well as bringing moisture and rain when needed. When they leave, they also carry the Zunisí prayers for rain with them.
