This belt buckle is a true treasure! This piece of Native American jewelry is Hopi overlay hand crafted by artist George Phillips out of genuine sterling silver. Overlay is a process that utilizes at least two layers of sterling silver. One layer forms the foundation, while the second is used to design the individual detailed overlay. In this belt buckle, the second layer forms a magnificent Kokopelli, Cloud, Rain, Prayer Sticks, and Corn Stalk designs that gives the piece a beautiful look. The Kokopelli is a common fertility symbol throughout the Southwest. In Native American beliefs, the Kokopelli visits various communities, seducing and impregnating the young women drawn to the tones of his flute playing. Clouds, Rain and Lightning, in addition to representing themselves, they are also important symbols of change, renewal and fertility. Closely related is snow, which is considered even more of a blessing than rain. Belt buckle is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
