I cannot find anything similar to this piece and cannot find any hallmark similar to it. Maybe it isn’t even NA, maybe from Mexico? Wondering if anyone has seen this mark before.
Beautiful lines to this piece.
Can’t find anything on the mark. I don’t believe this to be Native American. Almost like a symbol for a sword?
Clearly a sword motif. Lost wax cast in quantity. Likely not NA, or NA related in any way. This was made with a very particular and very narrow audience in mind. E.g.: https://www.sca.org
neither of you saw a prehistoric goddess figure?
In looking at the mark I think some of it is worn away and while it looks like a Y I’m thinking from the side it may be a different mark. It looks like some kind of goddess to me.
I do. It looks like a primitive idol.
I saw a woman praying
Sometimes a design can be two or three different things at once. It’s very cleverly done, and quite attractive!
OMGosh, you found it!!
Mystery solved! Thank you. I can rest now😝
shoot…spoiled the “ink-blot test”
Definitely has a Scandinavian feel to it. Runic. To me the motif looks Viking.
interesting backstory in her bio & artist statement
Thanks. I think I’ll stick with turquoise and fishing.
My best friend is a yoga teacher. Thank goodness I don’t have to pursue Renaissance re-enactments!
