Claudia Peina: Marble with Sterling Silver Wings, Butterfly Maiden

Claudia Peina: Marble with Sterling Silver Wings, Butterfly Maiden


Claudia has done such a marvelous job capturing every delicate detail of her maiden and expression. But what really caught my attention were her sterling silver wings. They glistened under the right light, adding an ethereal touch to her already divine presence. It was almost as if she could take flight at any moment! You could sense the artist's intention to create a juxtaposition between the solid yet graceful nature of marble and the fluidity represented by those silver wings. 

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.
