The rainbow man with his multi-colored body and arched back in a shape somewhat reminiscent of a rainbow, is an important original figure in Zuni inlay. This vintage handmade ring is a fine example; its rainbow man is inlaid of jet, turquoise, spondylus and white shell.
It is currently a size 5 1/4" ring, but it can easily be resized. The rainbow man figure measures a very noticeable 1 3/4" x 1". It dates circa 1960. Unsigned.
