Claudia Peina: Antler, 4 Corn Maidens

Claudia Peina: Antler, 4 Corn Maidens


Each maiden represents the fertility and abundance of the earth, making them not only beautiful but also rich in symbolic meaning. The use of antler adds a unique element to these pieces, giving them a rustic yet elegant feel. The turquoise and coral stones add pops of color that draw the eye and enhance the overall aesthetic appeal. 

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.
