Valerie Comosona artfully carved this corn maiden from a shell with a malachite face. There are three dragonflies carved on the bottom circle, four stars, a stalk of corn, and bits of turquoise inside and around the rim the shell. Turquoise is an offering and is sometimes associated with water.
Size: 2" H x 2.5" L x 3.25" W
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.
We like to give corn maiden sisters to the sisters in our families and the sisters we create as move through life to show them that we "have their backs" as our relationship continues to weave together.
