More info

Overlay pieces are made of two layers. The bottom layer is a solid sterling silver piece.  The top layer has a cutout design. The cutout is placed over the bottom layer and the two pieces are “sweated” together, that is heated so that they become one.
The bottom layer (background to the cutout) is usually accented. The Navajo silversmiths oxidize the bottom layer which darkens it. Hopi silversmiths oxidize and etch the background (texturize it) with hashmarks.

The meaning of the horse symbol was to signify mobility, stamina, strength and power. It was so revered by some tribes that the horse also represented loyalty, love and devotion. The horse symbol was also a sign of mutual respect. Its hoof print signifies the direction taken by riders. The horse symbol is often a feature of pictograms and ledger paintings.
