Dave Cooeyate: Fishrock, Corn Maiden With Turquoise Inlay

Dave Cooeyate: Fishrock, Corn Maiden With Turquoise Inlay


Simply breathtaking! And the added turquoise to add a pop of vibrant blue that contrasted perfectly with the earthy tones of the rock. Overall, it was a masterpiece that showcased both the creativity of the artist and the natural beauty found in our world.

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.
