Lapis Lazuli Maiden by Sandra Quandelacy

$ 350.00

A majestic lapis maiden figure with some pyretic sparkle and some gray areas carved by Sandra Quandelacy - delivered to Sunshine Studio in late July of 2023. Sandra has carved a mother on one side with a melon shell inlaid face and a corn maiden with incised corn rows on the opposite side with a turquoise inlaid face - both have jet inlaid features and wear a coral dot necklace. There are incised dragonflies inlaid with jet on both sides of the maidens' fringe shawls. This is a lyrical carving - the shawl almost mimic wings; the way they bellow outwards! Note - the maiden is inlaid to a turquoise base with a pin for added stability. Maidens symbolize abundance, fertility and feminine energy and the corn maiden is venerated in Zuni for giving up her life for the health of the community.
