The Zia symbol, well-known for its appearance on the New Mexico state flag, and sacred to the Zia people, is depicted in turquoise and sterling silver in this beautiful Navajo pendant by Robert Yellowhorse. To the Zia people, the Zia symbol represents the sacred number four, which symbolizes the Circle of Life: four winds, four seasons, four directions, and four sacred obligations. This pendant showcases a bright blue turquoise stone at the center, set in a simple sterling silver bezel and containing portions of brown and golden matrix. The stone is surrounded at the base by a sterling rope pattern, and finished with four soldered sterling silver bands protruding from top, bottom, and each side, completing the Zia symbol. 2 1/4″ long including bail x 1 1/2″ wide.
