Turquoise Maiden Figure by Kateri Sanchez

$ 250.00

An outstanding turquoise maiden figure with a brown matrix carved by Kateri Sanchez - delivered to Sunshine Studio in August of 2023. Kateri has put a young maiden on one side with a gold-lip inlaid face and a corn maiden on the opposite side, with a face created from the existing stone. The young woman has three prominent rounded coral beads added - creating a pendant and sash. The corn maiden has an orange spiny oyster pendant as well as three dots inlaid to the corn rows - utilizing purple alunite, turquoise and apple coral. Both maidens have jet inlaid features and share a Hopi squash blossom hairstyle - a hairdo that designates both these maidens are single. 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.
