The Buckle Guy Collection

The Buckle Guy Collection is self-explanatory. The discriminating owner of this group of vintage buckles gathered them over a period of 30-40 years, storing them in a showcase. They have never been used and are some of the finest buckles we have come across.

 

Yei Figure

Yei is a shortened version of YeiBeiChei, a holy figure in Native American cultures.

The yei figure symbolizes healing powers.

Appearing as petroglyphs (rock art) in North America, Yei figures are often use in healing sand paintings and woven into rugs. The figures can be found depicted standing upright, curved, angled and in a three-sided square.

There are male and female yei figures. Female yei have square heads and male yei are depicted with round heads.
