Overview
Delve into the fascinating origins and contemporary interpretations of Sun Face and Thunderbird/Hopi Bird designs. This thorough study was undertaken to establish the identities of 33 Zuni artists and their interpretations of these traditional designs from the 1940s through the 1960s. Their mosaic stone and shell inlay pins, bracelets, bolo ties, and other ornaments appear in over 190 color photos that display subtle variations indicative of each master's work and distinctive style. Also introduced are important but forgotten artists, such as Harry Deutsawe and Raphael Homer. It also features two intriguing variations of Sun Face designs, such as Sun Face with Horns and Sun Father and His Twin Sons. Detailed analysis explains the changes and connections among early and recent makers and their individual styles, materials, and designs.
