Natural shell-coral set in a sterling silver Zia Sun
Native American Indian jewelry lovingly handcrafted in New Mexico, USA!
New Mexico's distinctive Zia Sun Symbol originated with the Indians of Zia Pueblo in ancient times. Four is the sacred number of Zia, and the figure is composed of a circle from which four points radiate.
To the Zia Indian, the sacred number four is embodied in the earth, with its four directions; in the year, with its four seasons; in the day, with the sunrise, noon, evening, and night; in life, with its four divisions - childhood, youth, adulthood, and old age. Everything is bound together in a circle of life and love, without beginning, without end.
