Serpentine Butterfly Maidens by Florentino Martinez

$ 300.00

An outstanding delicate green serpentine carving made by Florentino Martinez depicting two butterfly maidens - one is large and one is very small - it appears the smaller one is a young child and the one above is the mother. Florentino has created a small base from the same stone - allowing the mother's large simplified wings to soar upwards. Both butterfly maidens have slit style incised eyes and circular mouths - neither of the faces are inlaid with jet. Butterfly maidens' themes are rebirth, beauty, fertility, balance, freedom, and nature. Every spring the butterfly maiden dances from flower to flower, pollinating the fields and flowers and bringing life-giving rain to the desert.
