Looking at such beauty tells the capabilities of Native American art! 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 Red Bearded Kachina, Corn Stalk, Prayer Sticks, Water Wave, Bear Paw, and border pattern designs that gives the piece an outstanding look. In Native American beliefs, the bear paw is usually considered a way to call for the power of the animal spirit, or as an indication of the presence of the spirit. It is a symbol that represents inner strength. The corn is a powerful symbol in many tribes. It is used for prayer of fertility and a good growing season. Belt buckle is stamped sterling and hallmarked.
