Animal: Corn Mother, Material: Jasper
This offering is sold.
Carved from polychrome jasper this Corn Mother embodies the concept of the "maiden grandmother" celebrating those wonderful elder-women, who may not have children of their own, but nurture and guide those around them. Kateri Quandelacy Sanchez celebrates all of womanhood in all its forms. She overlaid a beautiful face of gold lip shell and gifted this lovely lady with two inlaid turquoise pendants. Her shawl is adorned with more inlaid turquoise and blessed with an incised Dragonfly. Standing upright on a base of crushed turquoise and agate she is about 5" tall and 1 1/4" wide.
