Esteban Najera, who comes from the Laate family of Zuni artists, created this beautiful carving of antler. A Corn Maiden Spirit rises gracefully from an olla pot with intricate designs incised into the surface. The figure wears a blanket shawl, hands neatly folded in front and has a feather plume tucked into her hair. Individual corn kernels are delicately incised into the surface of the antler and the eyes are darkened with jet paste. This petite carving measures about 2 1/2" tall, 5/8" wide by 5/8" deep.
