Meaning and Beauty in Southwest Native Arts
In the past, as now, turquoise was valued for its color and beauty but also for its symbolic nature: sky, water, health, protection, and abundance. The book traces historical and contemporary jewelry made by Navajo, Zuni, Hopi, and Santo Domingo artisans, and continuously inventive ways the stone has been worked.
