Antler Butterfly Maiden by Claudia Peina

$ 475.00

An outstanding gray and cream colored antler butterfly maiden with jet inlaid eyes and a coral inlaid mouth carved by Claudia Peina. The maiden has thin gauge sterling silver inlaid wings with hammered stamps creating lovely designs. The maiden wears a fourteen dot turquoise squash blossom necklace. The maiden's matta/dress has geometric incised lines inlaid with jet with fourteen turquoise dots added to the center of the triangles - representing clouds with rain we have been told. Maidens symbolize abundance, fertility and feminine energy and the corn maiden is venerated in Zuni for giving up her life for the health of the community.
