Conch Shell Maiden Figure by Gloria Chattin

$ 170.00

A fantastic conch shell carved double corn maiden carved by Gloria Chattin. Gloria has incised the cornrows then inlaid four dots in the rows under each maiden's face - utilizing apple coral, spiny oyster, azurite/malachite, turquoise and lapis. Gloria has incised triangles all around the maidens as well as corn stalks and dragonflies. The stalks and dragonflies are also inlaid with jet. The portions of the shell that Gloria used to make the maidens is spectacular - the pink side is concave creating a glow effect. 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.
