This Zuni style Corn Maiden pendant is carved from glowing mother of pearl. The serene maiden seems to sleep, her turquoise inlay eyelids appearing closed.

It is stamped on the back "Sa Jen" and "925".

Across Native American cultures, the Corn Maidens symbolize the prayers of the people for a bountiful harvest.
