This beautifully crafted cast-sterling silver Yei pin is 2 inches long by 1 inch wide. The pin is stamped STERLING with hallmark HB, possibly Harrison Bitsue. The Yei or Yeii is the Navajo name for the benevolent supernatural beings who bring their healing power to medicinal ceremonies still performed today. In fact, they were first portrayed in traditional sandpainting designs created for these ceremonies, but the modern Yei is generally a pictorial composition, a front- facing stylized stick figure.
