Daniel Chattin: Abalone, Maiden

Daniel Chattin: Abalone, Maiden


Abalone is known for its vibrant colors and mesmerizing iridescence, which perfectly complements the ethereal beauty of this maiden. With intricate detailing, every curve and contour of the maiden's form is brought to life with precision and skill. 

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.
