Pin, Zuni Inlay, Vintage, Rainbow Man, 245

The Rainbow Man Yei is a guarding spirit who represents life-sustaining rains for the agricultural Southwest.  

In this charming pin, Rainbow Man is depicted in his traditional curved posed with his hands held high. Set in sterling silver, his “rainbow stones” are intricately inlaid within tiny saw-tooth bezels.  The stones range from blue and green hued turquoise, mother of pearl, jet, and orange spiny oyster. The addition of sterling “raindrops” and swirls adds interest and balance to this vintage piece.

Pin this one to your favorite denim jacket or trusty old hat!

History: Navajo Yeis control day, night, rain, wind, and sun. They are supernatural, grandparent spirits that intercede between humans and the Creator.
