Navajo tufa cast artist Philander Begay made this incredible Yei cuff. You will be taken away by the detail found on this Yei?, right down to the fox around the neck. One of the major ceremonies of the Navajo People is the nine-day night chant. During this ceremony the Talking God who is represented with a full headdress leads seven Yei dancers who usually have two feathers. The ceremony is to bring the patient into Hozho, balance and harmony with nature. Philander captures the beauty of the Yei?bi?chi on this hand carved cuff. A rustic finish completes this wonderful piece of collectible handmade silver and stone.
