The use of antler as the medium gives it a rustic and natural feel, while the coral adds a pop of color that elevates its beauty further.

You can easily imagine her gracefully standing in the middle of a bountiful harvest field, symbolizing the abundance and prosperity of nature. This artwork effortlessly captures the spirit of harvest festivals while bringing an aura of tranquility to any space it's displayed in.

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.
