Words cannot describe the transcendent beauty of this fabulous labradorite carving by Kateri Quandelacy Sanchez. Two corn maidens rise in unison as a pair of owls watches below. The maidens have faces of gold lip shell with ground jet paste details, the owls have inlaid eyes of mother of pearl and jet. The whole scene and the maiden's shawls are accented by inlaid red coral cabochons and incised star patterns filled with ground jet paste. On the other side, a beautifully incised Owl watches a Dragonfly pair dance, with its focused mother of pearl and jet eyes. This stunning carving is about 4" wide, 2" deep and 4 1/2" tall.
