Hopi Overlay Buckle of White Bear Katsinas By Bennett Kagenveama
Hopi jeweler Bennett Kagenveama is known for his incredibly detailed silver overlay jewelry. His pieces are akin to silver paintings. This particular overlay silver "painting" depicts dancing white bear katsinas around a kiva on a cloudy day. Hopefully, rain is on the way.
The buckle measures 3" x 2" and fits a 1.5" belt. Hallmarked on reverse.
