Summary
Companion to an exhibition exploring the Navajo concept of hozho -- harmony or balance in life -- this catalogue features outstanding examples of silver boxes and other containers created by Navajo silversmiths between 1920 and 1970 from the Sandy and Diane Besser Collection at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe. Many of the pieces are stamped or otherwise decorated, and some contain detailed stone inlay work by Pueblo artists.
