Antler Maiden by Claudia Peina - Zuni Fetish

$ 450.00

A regal cream and gray colored antler maiden carved by Claudia Peina with jet inlaid eyes and coral mouth. The maiden wears a squash blossom whorl hair style which suggests she is single as well as an eleven dot coral squash blossom necklace. The pièce de résistance is the elaborate fringe shawl the maiden wears with jet inlaid triangles placed around the opening of the shawl with thirteen turquoise dots inlaid at the center of each. Next to the triangles are six pen shell and eleven coral dots and two jet inlaid corn stalks. On the back of the shawl are more triangles, four coral, two turquoise and two jet dots. Maidens symbolize abundance, fertility and feminine energy & the corn maiden is venerated in Zuni for giving up her life for the health of the community.
