Hi! I’d like to find out what the symbol on my ring means and also if it is an authentic Zuni piece. I’ll include photos. Thanks!
First blush it looks like a stylized dancers head dress, but not all art pieces have to be “symbols” of something. It can just be a neat design the artist came up with. As far as the signature goes, I can’t read it as it is blurred, but chances are it is signed in script by the artist and marked Zuni. The needle point is correct, hard to tell about the turquoise.
