One of a Kind piece
Pendant representing Corn Maiden, inlaid of lapis-lazuli, mother-of-pearl, coral, Sleeping Beauty turquoise (Arizona) and black-jet.
The body of the Maiden is made with a tiny cobble inlay process, reminding the shapes of the corn seeds, and her face has the figures of Sunface, the Sacred Sun Father, symbol of life.
Corn Maiden is the "grand-mother of the sun and of the light" and is represented as an ear of corn. Corn is an essential crop, it is considered as a very important symbol of life.
As the corn is given life by the sun, the Corn Maiden brings the fire of the sun into the human bodies, making them as the creator designed them to be.
The Great Spirit has given man many representations of his love and power through nature. The Corn maidens are said to have been created by the Great Spirit in the palm of his right hand.
Each Maiden brings one seed of corn that is nurtured with love like that given to a child , that this one seed would sustain the entire tribe forever. With love and strength from the tribe, the tiny seeds mature and grow tall and crops for the people. The spirit of the Corn Maidens is forever present with the tribal people.
