This piece was made by Herbert and Esther Cellicion, prior to Esther's death. Herbert has not been making any jewelry since her death, so it is difficult to get any new pieces. The Cellicions were known for their Knifewing, Butterfly and Rainbow Man pieces. Their work can be found on display in fine public and private collections throughout the southwest and it is often seen in Zuni jewelry collecting guides.
