SAND CAST RUNNING DEER PIN Sand cast sterling silver running deer pin circa 1960's. ×1¼ weighs 15.1 grams. The Navajo revere the deer. They believe the creator formed the first man and woman in the world partly from deer hides. Special ceremonies must be performed before deer hunting and butchering because of the deer's special relationship with the Navajo. Additionally, pregnant women and their husbands may not hunt deer or participate in deer butchering. Droppings, antlers, and untanned hides are not meant to be touched, especially by children. Great addition to your collection?
