Vintage sterling silver stud earrings with butterfly backs. These were part of old store stock so are in like new condition. I think from the late 80s or early 90s.The design is called 'the man in the maze' and depicts a god in the tradition of the O'odham people, a southwestern tribe, who thought he was responsible for the gift of the Himdag, a series of commandments guiding people to remain in balance with the world and interact with it as intended.

I thought this description of the meaning of the design on Wickipedia was very cool, so I am including it here: 'According to O'odham oral history, the labyrinth design depicts experiences and choices we make in our journey through life. In the middle of the "maze", a person finds their dreams and goals. When one reaches the center, we have one final opportunity (the last turn in the design) to look back upon our choices and path, before the Sun God greets us, blesses us and passes us into the next world.' (and thanks to Charlotte for pointing out the origin of the design to me!)

I have a number of this style of earring in a few different designs, because they were old store stock, so if you like this style, have a browse for the others under my earring section here:
