Old New Mexico Zuni hand made cross. Cross is very old, two to three hundred years old. In the 1960's, the Zuni people decided to take out the Catholic Missions, and reinstate their own ancient religion, those churches were torn down, and the hand made articles made at the direction of the Catholic Church were disposed of, this cross is one example of that purge.  Measures 21 inches by 16 inches, the primitive cross is hand painted over using the old turkey red and turquoise paint, with hand made finials on the ends of the cross.  These old New Mexico items are getting very scarce.  I purchased this one from an Indian Trader I have worked with for 20 years.  Thanks for shopping in the land of Enchantment!
