Claudia Peina: Antler with Sterling Silver Wings, Butterfly Maiden

Claudia Peina: Antler with Sterling Silver Wings, Butterfly Maiden


This beautifully crafted butterfly maiden carving is a whimsical piece of art that combines the natural beauty of Antler with the elegance of turquoise and Sterling Silver. The intricate details of the carving bring the butterfly maiden to life, capturing her grace and delicate nature. The use of Antler as the main material adds a unique touch to this piece, showcasing the artist's creativity in choosing an unconventional medium. The inlaid turquoise adds vibrant pops of color, complementing the earthy tones of the antler. And with its sterling silver wings delicately angled, this maiden exudes a sense of lightness and movement in an almost ethereal way. 

Maiden (kyatsik'i): All types of maidens are part of this collection: Corn Maiden, Grandmother Maiden, Butterfly Maiden, Maiden of Blue Corn, Maiden, etc.

Butterfly (Bu:la'kya): In its short life butterfly (Bu:la'kya) transforms from a tiny egg to a crawling caterpillar, then becomes an outwardly still cocoon until a winged creature emerges. Butterfly medicine shows us the significance of each stage of transformation. Butterfly dances on flowers, tastes nectar and flowers through their feet, sees the hidden spectrum of ultraviolet, and gracefully flies on invisible atmospheric currents, displaying balance and poise. Although butterfly looks delicate some varieties tenaciously migrate incredible distances of up to 3,000 miles. Butterfly's element is the air, symbolic of mental realms. Our minds can go in any direction and our thoughts can take any form. Butterfly navigates this positive transformation easily and brings powerful beauty to the world.
