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.
