Native American Hopi Made Man in the Maze Ring
Native American Hopi Made Man in the Maze Ring by Lucinda Namoki
This Sterling silver ring featuring the Man in the Maze was done by Hopi silversmith Lucinda Namoki in deeply cut overlay. The Great Seal of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community is this ancient pattern. The pattern figured for untold years in Pima baskets and represents the Maze, or house of “Se-eh-ha.” The legend states the “Man in the Maze” helps children understand the meaning of life. The maze depicts experiences and choices we make in our journey through life. It illustrates the search for balance—physical, social, mental and spiritual. In the middle of the maze are found a persons dreams and goals. Legend says when we reach the center, the Sun God is there to greet us, bless us and pass us into the next world.
