A charming, chubby Hopi Corn Maiden pendant carved from an incredible piece of turquoise. The stunning colors of the turquoise are unreal. Her sweet little features are red coral inlay. She wears the squash blossom hairstyle of an unmarried Hopi woman. The Maiden has a large decorative bale, and she hangs on a vintage sterling silver diamond cut rope chain. Circa 1970.
Across Native American cultures, the Corn Maidens symbolize the prayers of the people for a bountiful harvest.
Details.....The chain is 18" long. The Maiden measures 0.70" by 1.66", 2.50" with bale. In Very Good Vintage Condition. You should expect some wear on all vintage and antique jewels, we consider it part of their charm.
