Serpentine Butterfly Maiden by Florentino Martinez

$ 300.00

A black and lime green serpentine butterfly maiden carved setting on top of the village - a prayer bowl with a Kolowisi serpent in it. This might be a prayer in stone of thankfulness to the Kolowisi for saving the tribe from a flood, one of the Zuni creation stories. Carved by Florentino Martinez, the micro detail is mind boggling considering all of the elements are carved from one stone.
