Description
 
This beautiful Shalako dancer ring was created by well-known Zuni artist Frank Vacit. Set with materials of Blue Gem turquoise, jet, Mother of Pearl, coral and mussel shell. This lovely ring offers the best of Vacit's work, with his distinct mosaic inlay design of Zuni figures set in a mother-of-pearl background along with the outstanding silver work on both the frame and sides of the ring shank. The ring measures 1 3/4" long by 7/8" wide. Size 7. Hallmarked with his fleur-de-lis.

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.
