This fascinating work delves into the origins and contemporary interpretations of Kachina and Ceremonial Dancer designs. This groundbreaking study establishes for the first time the identities of Zuni artists and their works from the 1940s through the 1960s. Their mosaic stone and shell inlay pins, bracelets, bolo ties, and other ornaments appear in 240 vibrant color photos revealing subtle variations that indicate a particular master's work and distinctive style. For the first time, this research introduces John Lucio's earlier pieces and confirms Anna Rita Homer and Lambert Homer Jr.'s pieces clearly, as never before. It also introduces Robert Cachini Sr. (formerly known only as R. C. Sr.)and his pieces. The author's analysis explains the changes and connections among early and recent makers and their individual styles, materials, and designs. For anyone with a passion for jewelry of the Southwest, this book will be a treasure.
