Turquoise corn maiden fetish by Sandra Quandelacy
Corn maiden fetish by Zuni artist Sandra Quandelacy, made of natural turquoise, with jet inlay and raised coral inlay. It measures just over 3/4" wide, 5/8" deep, and 2 1/2" tall. Very intricate carving, especially the hair and clothing, and a beautiful piece of turquoise. The Corn Maiden helps to bring a healthy corn crop (abundance), which is an important source of food to the Zuni.
