Oval Rainbow Man Inlay Ring

About The Oval Rainbow Man Inlay Ring

Possibly fifty years have passed since this ring left the hands of its maker . . .

Time passes and yet it remains a handsome statement, wearable sculpture.

and thanks to a newly published book titled Knifewing and Rainbow Man in Zuni Jewelry by Toshio Sei, we know the artist to have been Ida Vacit Poblano.  On page 100, another ring by Ida is illustrated employing the same Rainbow Man.
