The Zuni incorporated their respect for the Sun into their jewelry in form of the Sunface. The traditional Sunface represents the finest in Zuni inlay artistry and craftsmanship. The Sunface is generally crafted as a circular motif and its center inlay represents the face of Sun. The forehead is normally divided into two sections that symbolize the non-stop cycle of sunrise and sunset. The lower part of the Sunface contains rectangular eyes and a round mouth symbolizing the continuity of life. The face is surrounded by a feather-like design.
