Corn maidens represent everything good about being a woman: strong, kind, compassionate, nurturing, and powerful. There are many Indigenous stories about how corn was brought to the people at a time when there was hunger, and how a sacred, sometimes other worldly, female being brought them corn. Corn maidens come with a card detailing the meaning, the carver, and the material they are carved from.
