Warrior maiden fetish by Claudia Peina
Warrior Maiden fetish by Zuni artist Claudia Peina, made of Mohave Turquoise with coral and jet inlay. The shield and lance is made out of silver. It measures 1" wide , 1" deep, and 3 1/2" tall. Signed on the bottom. This fetish is beautifully carved, characteristic of Claudia Peina's style, and the Warrior maiden is something is makes and is rarely seen done.
The Corn Maiden helps to bring a healthy corn crop (abundance), which is an important source of food to the Zuni.
