The Yei' be Chei is a gateway during the healing ceremonies from this world to the next. Navajo artist Philander Begay captured the traditional look of the Yei' be Chei' in this tufa carved bolo design. The figure is complete with full headdress, moccasins, fox tail and rattle. What immediately brings your intention to the unique carving is the stunning piece of turquoise Philander has used for the body. This rock is a piece of Pilot Mountain Turquoise that showcases an incredibly deep blue color that is filled with a heavy dose of copper colored matrix. That stone pops against the traditional Navajo character. Philander has completed his piece with a braided leather bolo cord and sterling silver tips.
