The Zia symbol is a powerful icon that represents New Mexico and its people. Inspired by a design found on a 19th century water jar from Zia Pueblo, the Zia Symbol represents the Four directions: North, South, East and West; the Four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter; the Four times of day: sunrise, noon, evening and night; and, the Four stages of life: childhood, youth, adulthood and old age. The four sets of rays are bound together with a circle representing life without beginning and without end. Underscoring the symbol’s design is the Zia people’s belief that humanity has four sacred obligations: to develop a strong body, a clear mind, a pure spirit and a devotion to the welfare of mankind.
This durable keychain is made from top grain leather with solid iron hardware in a vintage finish. The leather will soften and age beautifully, developing a rich patina over time. Each piece is unique and will vary slightly in grain, color and markings.
