Green Snail Shell Maiden Figure by Vickie Quandelacy

$ 450.00

A striking green snail shell corn maiden looking up at the sky with jet inlaid features - carved by Vickie Quandelacy and delivered to Sunshine Studio in July of 2022. Rhoda has inlaid the maiden to a striking white marble base with turquoise and coral spots inherent to the stone - creating added stability. Rhoda has imaginatively added turquoise chips around the juncture of the carving to the base - suggesting water. Rhoda has added one of her fantastic necklaces - this time utilizing bits of turquoise and pink mussel shell strips with incised lines as well a turquoise and coral dots. There are jet inlaid stars and dragonflies added to the sides of the maiden's body. 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.
