The Serpent of the Sea is an old Zuni legend. It is a story of a young maiden who is taken to the water spring by the persuading Serpent and spends eternity there with him. Zuni artists Nancy and Ruddell Laconsello bring this legend back to life with this incredible piece of handmade art. They have decorated the serpent with jet, turquoise, coral, and shell. Ruddell has darkened the background to bring out the colors and shapes of the inlaid figures. We often see this design in a pendant, but this time they turn it into a large cuff. You will appreciate the size of the piece, something that is going to show very nice. Ruddell, along with his wife Nancy create magnificent pieces of mosaic inlay and owning a piece of their work will not only be an investment but it will give you something to admire for years to come.
