This offering is sold.
This graceful grandmother carries a gift of seashells. Claudia Peina's maidens and grandmothers carry themselves with confidence. Claudia has adorned this wise woman with a shawl decorated with pueblo inspired designs of inlaid jet and bright beads of inlaid turquoise, coral, and pen shell. Her basket of seashells is also decorated with inlaid jet designs, coral and turquoise inlaid dots. She wears a substantial necklace of inlaid turquoise and her dress has a flower adornment of inlaid turquoise and coral. We love her beautifully incised hair, jet inlaid eyes, and sweet coral mouth. About 7" tall and 1 1/2" wide.
