Labradorite Medicine Bear With Maidens by Kateri Sanchez

$ 550.00

A large labrdorite medicine bear with turquoise inlaid eyes plays host to two corn maidens. This dynamic carving was created & delivered to Sunshine by Kateri Sanchez in early 2020. Both corn maidens have gold-lip faces and jet inlaid eyes with their incised corn rows reducing to a point, enveloped in a lovely shawl. The 2 maidens wear turquoise pendants and have jet dragonflies and stars strategically placed around them creating a lovely composition. Maidens represent abundance, fertility and feminine energy & corn maidens in particular are honored in Zuni for nurturing the people - with the flesh of their bodies. The medicine bear shape is thought to resemble a cave opening - depicting a bear coming out of hibernation & the pose suggests the bear is sniffing the ground for healing herbs.
