Navajo Made Man in the Maze Reversible Necklace by Beverly Mannie
This simple sterling silver pendant is stamped with the Man in the Maze on one side and has a beautiful nugget of turquoise on the opposite side. This piece was created by Navajo Jewelry artist Beverly Mannie. 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.
