Corn Maiden in Bronze with Parrot feathers Limited Edition 6/30.

This marvelous maiden depicts the legend of the corn maiden bringing nourishing corn to the people. She taught them how to plant and care for the kernels of corn so they would never be hungry. She is often depicted with a tablita on her head. The back of the bronze illustrates the rain falling on the mountains and kivas providing water so the corn can grow. Each side of the bronze maiden has rivers carrying the water to the crops. This beautiful maiden sits on a revolving walnut base.
