Arching over the pueblo in a gesture of protection, a Corn Maiden brings life. The pueblo is represented with delicately inlaid miniature stick 'vigas' which are wood beams that support a roof's structure in real life. Turquoise inlaid corn stalks grow, as do Dragonflies who help pollinate the crop. Eyes are from inlaid sterling silver, while finely sgraffito-etched corn kernels adorn. She wears a traditional tablita headdress plus a coral and turquoise inlaid necklace. Gorgeously carved from one specimen of water buffalo horn by Todd Westika, she stands strong at about 5 1/2" tall, 2" wide and 2 1/2" deep.
