Item Details

Made by award-winning Santo Domingo artist, Joseph Coriz, this sterling silver overlay bracelet is one of Joseph's hallmark story bracelets. Each of the panels within the bracelet symbolizes something. The crooked arrows are for powerful energy, brought to bear from the heavens onto the corn. The migration of animals represent the journey of the Kewa (and the rest of us) to find our center place. Each of the animals carry a meaning we need in our lives. The bear tells us to walk our path with purpose, a metaphor for the bear emerging from hibernation, then seeking life, and us having dreams and pursuing them. The ram represents the security of a sturdy and increasing flock. The armadillo is a symbol of Mother Earth. All are blessed by the power of celestial phenomena, which bring the sacred, healing water images at the end. And altogether they represent the spiritual and physical well-being for the Pueblo. The starry night above depicts the connectedness of the people to the celestial powers, to their heritage, and to their ancestors. The spiral is the migration symbol, conveying searching for our center place. And our center place is home, family, and village, sustained by sacred traditions, life-giving forces from the earth we share, by our dreams and by the love we give--all represented by the corn. A gorgeous natural Kingman turquoise stone completes this hallmark piece. The bracelet measures 1” at the widest and tapers down to 5/8”, and is 6 1/4” around, including an opening of 1”.
