    This knifewing god figure is very high quality. It was clearly made by master artist(s) at Zuni. It is known that C G Wallace, the trader at Zuni, brought in a few Navajo silversmiths to work with the finest Zuni lapidaries. The silverwork in this pin is likely the result of that collaboration.
