Beaded Zuni Shalako

Product Description

The Shalako festival of Zuni, which occurs every year at the beginning of December, but sometimes falls near the end of November, is a remarkable sacred drama, enacted in the open for the double purpose of invoking the divine blessing upon certain newly-built houses, and of rendering to the gods of Zuni thanks for the harvests of the year. The exact date of the coming of the Shalako is fixed each year by a formula of the Zuni Bow priests, which traditionally was the 49th day past the tenth full moon, but has been altered to the weekend nearest the 49th day past the tenth full moon. This is a Beautiful rendition of the main character in this ceremony Hand Crafted by Master Artisan Todd Poncho. 3 7/8" tall- 1" wide- 3/4" deep.
