The Sun Disk Ring is hand carved and detailed with an intricate sun disk pattern inspired by an ancient southeastern carved shell gorget. The sun disk pattern was also used in other southeastern carved shell pieces to depict the feathered wings of southeastern sky dieties.
It thought that boat stones were used in the ancient southeast as a spear weight or for ceremonial purposes. They were perfectly carved out of a variety of stones and polished to a high gleam. The side of this timeless shape is carved with a symbolic feather pattern inspired by ancient shell carvings.
This ring in cast in sterling silver with an antique finish.
