Purisima, Crawstone ( Limestone with Embedded Shells, Baja California, Mexico) Maiden by Andres Lementino

$ 360.00

A purisima; limestone, shell embedded maiden with turquoise and coral inlaid eyes carved by Andres Lementino - delivered to Sunshine Studio's front porch in November of 2021. The shells lead the eye all over the carving - landing on the purple alunite, turquoise and jet eyed dragonfly on the center of the maiden's mata/dress. Andres has carved the maidens hands in low relief just above the dragonfly and they hold a clam and jet inlaid eagle feather. Maidens symbolize abundance, fertility and feminine energy. This seems to be a maiden praying for rain - the gift of the dragonfly - who only appears with rain or near water.
