Alabaster Zuni Sunface God Fetish by James Cheama

Product Description

The Sunface is an important cultural symbol of the Zuni people and represents the Sun Father, one of their three main kachinas or deities. For the Zuni, the Sun symbolizes abundance, continuity, stability, positive energy, hope, happiness and peace and praying to the Sun is a critical part of Zuni culture. The Zuni Sunface is one of the pinnacles of Zuni inlay artistry and artist James Cheama uses exacting cuts to create the fine inlay used in the Sunface. In this piece the rays of the Sun extend from the central face and are textured across their circumference to add extra detail. This texture is replicated in a checkerboard effect on the Sunface body and Turquoise and Red Coral shards at the feet of the God create a surface befitting this Zuni figure of worship. Dimensions: 2'' H x 1.25'' L x 0.75'' W.
