1970's Vintage Zuni earrings. Made of solid sterling silver with genuine stones and shells. The figure is perfectly shaped with a slight curve with abalone shells, mother of pearl, turquoise, coral and black jet. They measure 1" in length with a width of 5/8". The Rainbow Man is a symbol of protection often seen on the Zuni's war shields and is a symbol of the rainbow which represents the life sustaining rains for their agricultural importance in the arid American Southwest. The Rainbow Man was one of the first figures used in traditional Zuni mosaic inlay jewelry.
