Additional Details:
The Navaho silversmiths learned their art centuries ago from Mexico and there has been comparatively little change in either method or tools, the art being maintained in pure form by them. The geometric forms that prevail in the designs usually have a significance; a triangle may represent a mountain or an arrow-head; a cross may indicate the morning star or the four quarters of the compass
