Bill Mex Dineh, Navajo South West Blue Turquoise Sterling Silver Ring With Silversmith Roping And Stamp work. Silver Tested. Ring Size 7. Estimated less than 50 yrs old. The Navajos are a Native American people of the Southwestern United States. After the Cherokee, they are the second largest federally recognized tribe in the United States. Until contact with Pueblos and the Spanish, the Navajos were largely hunters and gatherers. The tribe adopted crop farming techniques from the Pueblo peoples. The practice of spinning and weaving wool into blankets and clothing became common and eventually developed into a form of highly valued artistic expression. Silversmithing is an important art form among Navajos. Atsidi Sani c. 1830Ðc. 1918 is considered to be the first Navajo silversmith. He learned silversmithing from a Mexican man called Nakai Tsosi "Thin Mexican" around 1878 and began teaching other Navajos how to work with silver. By 1880, Navajo silversmiths were creating handmade jewelry including bracelets, tobacco flasks, necklaces and bracers. Later, they added silver earrings, buckles, bolos, hair ornaments, pins and squash blossom necklaces for tribal use, and to sell to tourists as a way to supplement their income. The Navajos' hallmark jewelry piece called the "squash blossom" necklace first appeared in the 1880s. Turquoise has been part of jewelry for centuries, but Navajo artists did not use inlay techniques to insert turquoise into silver designs until the late 19th century.

Large Sterling And Turquoise Ring
Large Sterling And Turquoise Ring Estimated more than 50 yrs old. Native Americans also known as American Indians or just simply Indians are considered to be people whose pre-Columbian ancestors were indigenous to the lands within the nation's modern boundaries. These peoples were composed of numerous distinct tribes, bands, and ethnic groups, and many of these groups survive intact today as partially sovereign nations. The Iroquois, living around the Great Lakes and extending east and north, used strings or belts called wampum that served a dual function: the knots and beaded designs mnemonically chronicled tribal stories and legends, and further served as a medium of exchange and a unit of measure. The keepers of the articles were seen as tribal dignitaries. Pueblo peoples crafted impressive items associated with their religious ceremonies. Kachina dancers wore elaborately painted and decorated masks as they ritually impersonated various ancestral spirits. Sculpture was not highly developed, but carved stone and wood fetishes were made for religious use. Superior weaving, embroidered decorations, and rich dyes characterized the textile arts. Both turquoise and shell jewelry were created, as were high-quality pottery and formalized pictorial arts. Navajo spirituality focused on the maintenance of a harmonious relationship with the spirit world, often achieved by ceremonial acts, usually incorporating sand painting. The colors made from sand, charcoal, cornmeal, and pollen depicted specific spirits. These vivid, intricate, and colorful sand creations were erased at the end of the ceremony.

Vintage Italian Art Glass Gold Flake Hand Colored
Vintage Italian Art Glass Gold Flake Hand Colored Painting On The Reverse Side of Glass. The Scenes In This Painting Have Fascinating Details Depicting The Roman Empire. Estimated more than 75 yrs old. Italian art dates back to the Ancient Romans who left remains in Italy of extraordinary richness. Italian painting began to develop beyond the influence of Byzantium in the Duecento or 13th Century, maintaining its lead throughout the Italian Renaissance, and reaching a particular peak in the High Renaissance of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael. Italy retained its artistic dominance into the 17th Century with Mannerism and the Baroque. In the 18th Century Neoclassicism originated in Rome, but this was the last such Italian-born style that spread to all Western art. However, Italy maintained a presence in the international art scene from the mid 19th Century onwards. Italian art has influenced several major movements throughout the centuries and has produced several great artists, including painters, architects and sculptors.
