Beautiful Zia Sun pendant made from rich red high fire Terra Cotta clay.
I created this pendant, carved with the Zia sun glyph, fired, then glazed it on one side only to show the rich Terra Cotta colour and fired once again.
Threaded onto an adjustable 1mm black cotton cord. The pendant measures 1-1/8" in diameter by 1/8" thick (30mm x 4mm).
**Only one model has been made, unique creation, what you see in the photo is what you will receive. Colour will vary in intensity from PC monitor to smartphone screen.**
About the Zia Pueblo Sun Symbol:
"Zia" means sun, and is also the name of the symbol. Today it is the sole symbol on the flag of the State of New Mexico, but the symbol is very old- it is found on pottery, art, and other artefacts of the Zia Pueblo tribes of New Mexico. The number four is sacred to the Zia Native Americans and this emblem embodies this number as the powers of nature- the sun, the four directions, seasons, and the ages of man.
