This amazing piece of history is in very good, vintage condition with a moderate patina. Knifewing, also Knife Wing, is a half man half eagle Zuni spirit or god with razor sharp feathers made of flint.He is the ultimate warrior. He is represented as possessing a human form, furnished with flint knife-feathered pinions, and tail. His dress consists of the conventional terraced cap (representative of his dwelling place among the clouds). His weapons are the Great Flint-Knife of War, the Bow of the Skies (the Rainbow), and the Arrow of Lightning. His guardians or warriors are the Great Mountain Lion of the North and that of the upper regions. He was doubtless the original War God of the Zunis. THANKS FOR LOOKING AND HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!
