It is a debate on where the naja design originated. Most believe the Navajo saw the design on the horse bridles of the Spanish and incorporated it into their silver. You will often see this design at the bottom of squash blossom necklaces which are recognized around the world as Navajo jewelry. Navajo artist Aaron Anderson made his interpretation from carving the design in tufa stone and then pouring silver. He adds a pair of hands at the bottom. Hands are often referred to healing hands in Native American art. The Navajo do call humans the five fingered ones and maybe these represent humanity. Wear this pendant to show your appreciation of Native American art.
