Corn Maiden fetish by Gabriel Sice
Native American Zuni fetish carving of a Corn Maiden, made of antler, with turquoise, jet, and coral inlay. It is about 1/2" x 1/4" wide at the base, and 1 5/8" tall. Very intricately detailed hair, face, and dress. Made by Zuni artist Gabriel Sice. The Corn Maiden helps to bring a healthy corn crop (abundance), which is an important source of food to the Zuni.
