Melon Shell Maiden With Eagle by Stuart Quandelacy

$ 210.00

A fascinating melon shell figure depicting 2 maidens, one corn maiden and an eagle - the maidens have jet inlaid features and the eagle has turquoise inlaid eyes. The wonderfully composed figure is very sturdy thanks to the small jet base that has turquoise chips inlaid to it. The shell creates lovely contrasts, going from peach to brown spots and then an extreme orange, utilizing the inside of the shell. The maiden symbolizes abundance, fertility and feminine energy & the corn maiden is venerated in Zuni for giving up her life for the health of the community.
