Jared Amesoli comes from the greater Laate family of Zuni artists. His brother was carver Yancy Robert Halusewa (d) and his sister is Adrianna Halusewa.
At about 3 1/2" tall, 2" wide and 3/4" deep, Jared's corn-maidens unite with Zuni Sunface symbols which represent the elements in balance, in this fabulous antler carving. The corn maiden's bodies are incised and inlaid with tidbits of turquoise, red coral, malachite, lapis and variscite. Their sweet faces are inlaid with turquoise.
Ron Laahty's lapis corn maiden is an intricate weave of circular and square red coral, turquoise, purple spiny oyster shell, mother of pearl, and sugilite cabochons. Her heartfelt eyes and mouth are overlaid turquoise and her hair holds delicately incised feathers. A Sunface of jet, turquoise, mother of pearl, and pipestone hides discreetly in her robe folds as does an incised flower with purple spiny oyster shell and malachite. Two tiny creatures accompany this maiden: a gentle Butterfly with red coral body and a turquoise eye, and a graceful Dragonfly with turquoise accented wings. Near the base is a carved heartline with an overlaid turquoise arrow tip. She stands about 3" tall, 2 1/2" wide, and 1 1/2" deep.
