The Knifewing seems to serve some different functions for the Zuni people. Some talk about how it protects the village, while others tell stories of how he swoops down into the village and takes away the young beautiful maidens. Zuni artist depicts the powerful Knifewing on this bolo using lots of different colored stones. The figure is detailed with etching and you will find coral, pipestone, jet, turquoise in shell used to create the Knifewing.

You find mirror shined sterling silver bringing out the rich color of the stones. Imagine wearing this daily, it will create a whole new lifestyle for you. This will be an excellent piece of Zuni art to add to your collection.
