Cosmic gate is a study in a contemporary study in Navajo Stamped silver. Using mild steel stamps and contemporary stamps the buckle is a unique blend of old and new with a hefty 10 gauge silver. Cold foraged into shape and bushed with a matte finished makes this complete belt.
Cosmic gate, as it’s sometimes called “The Gate of Truth” is the hero’s judgments of their actions and sacrifices as they weigh their personal wants and needs against the needs of their family, community and the many. Some may never have such an encounter in their lives while others know very well the meeting of the gate keeper. On this buckle stills an abstract entity that changes with each person’s interpretation. What will be the outcome if such an encounter? Only the hero knows.
Like many 1st phase buckles, this piece has no stone. In my family and the stories that have be told to me, turquoise and many everyday jewelry is not worn when a warrior is initiated. A prohibition against the stones and gems of tradition must not witness violence. Shiny metals are rubbed down with sand and given a matte finished to prevent glitz. Old teaching that enforce survival in both practical and mental sense and self.
