Bolo ’Em Over. To achieve the precision and delicacy of the designs he wishes to create, Navajo artisan Orville White often makes his own stamps. The extraordinary intricacy of this hand-stamped Navajo Bolo Tie proves his mastery of the art. Hallmarked on back, the Navajo Bolo Tie slide and cord tips are sterling silver. Each will vary slightly. Braided leather cord, 36"l.; slide, 2" x 1.5".
We know it when we see it. It’s casually rustic, earthen-hued and sun-baked. It’s often accented with turquoise—weaving its way in geometric textiles or inlaying sterling silver jewelry. These beautiful products are direct representations of the style that is curated, piece by piece, in the collections of our National Museums of the American Indian and American History.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
