Sterling Silver Lizard Pin by Ben Yazzie, Jr. (008)

4 1/2"


Every once in a while, something truly unique wanders in through our Kokopelli doors. Often times it is a real lizard that has lost its way or is wondering just what is inside that cavernous entryway. In this case, it was Navajo silversmith Ben Yazzie with a sterling silver sculpture of a Collared Lizard. Ben is one of those artists that can sculpt a truly impressive, life-sized interpretation of a dainty creature and make it seem animated. The only other thing we can say to express our opinion of Ben’s lizard pin is, “WOW!”
