Antique Sterling Silver Hand Carved Cuff Bracelet Hopi Sun Kachina
This is an amazing one of a kind hand carved piece of Native American art. Depicting a Hopi Sun Kachina this piece comes from an art gallery supporting Native American artisans in the American Southwest. Hopi tradition uses the term Kachina to describe supernatural beings that are connected with the forces of nature. They are not considered gods, but rather allies that people can turn to for counsel and education. This is the sun symbol, which the Hopi call Tawa Kachina. This symbol, with its face and projecting rays, personifies the sun and makes it easy to don during festive activity. The Hopi traditionally create an image of Tawa Kachina to wear during the solstice ceremony. By wearing a likeness of the sun during this critical time of the year, the Hopi people felt that they could lure the suns return after winter and begin the growing season.

This is fitting, as the Tawa Kachina is thought to be not only a symbol of the sun, but also of life, growth, and abundance. Additionally, it is a signal of the strength of spirit found within each of us. This piece was hand carved by a Native American artisan out of 144g sterling silver.
