Olla Maiden & Corn Maidens Of Cuprite

By Sandra Quandelacy

This offering is sold.
Sandra Quandelacy's gorgeous two-sided cuprite carving shows an olla maiden holding her water carrying vessel filled with crushed lapis on one side. We love the long, evenly incised fringe on the olla maiden's shawl, so pretty. Her face is of overlaid turquoise. The reverse side depicts two corn maidens joined by a Dragonfly friend. Their corn bodies are inlaid with colorful bits. One of the corn maiden's face is overlaid with gold lip shell. About 3 3/8" tall and 2 1/4" long.
