Chad Quandelacy: Turquoise, Corn Maiden

Chad Quandelacy: Turquoise, Corn Maiden


Turquoise, is considered a sacred stone associated with protection and healing properties. So when you combine these two elements together—the vibrant blue-green hues of turquoise encased in the graceful form of a corn maiden—you have an extraordinary piece that embodies both beauty and symbolic meaning. 

Corn Maiden (A:dow e:washdok'i): In the Zuni Pueblo the three stages of woman are recognized as:

  • Maiden, symbolizing potential
  • Mother, the life giver
  • Grandmother, the wise elder

Usually the maiden fetish will be emerging from corn (the corn maiden) or she will have whorls of hair on the side of her head, signifying that she has not had a child. The mother fetish also can be emerging from the corn (the corn mother) and she will have children with her or look pregnant. The grandmother usually has a shawl over her head and no corn represented on her body.
