An older Navajo Keto, or Bow Guard handmade to protect the wrist when using a bow and arrow to hunt. Surprising, many young Navajo men love to use a bow and arrow to hunt and their fathers often make them a keto as a gift. This is a nice simple Keto which makes me believe it was made of a young Navajo hunter. It was made in the 1970’s. The Turquoise is from the Kingman Turquoise Mine and the stones are nugget cut and the Sterling Silver is hand stamped and domed where the Turquoise Stones are attached to the piece.
Each stone is approx. : 13.60mm long X 8.70mm wide. Size – Small mans wrist.
