Fourteen Corn-maidens reside in Chad Quandelacy's impressively detailed turquoise carving. Alive with incised Dragonfly friends and lovely etched flowers inlaid with turquoise and red coral, this approximate 4 1/2" tall, 2 1/4" wide and 1" deep reversible work represents feminine strength and potential. Their faces are incised and darkened with jet paste. An abundance of growing Corn is inlaid with colorful jet, red coral and turquoise pieces. This phenomenal carving is permanently presented on a base of jet. Chad Quandelacy's parents are renowned Zuni carvers Stewart Quandelacy and Priscilla Lasiloo.
