A Zuni woman wearing whorls on the sides of her head signifies that she has not had a baby. In Zuni Pueblo, because of the deep extended family connections, an elder woman is honored as “a grandmother” because she has experience and wisdom. This woman is not emerging from corn (fertility), so she is a maiden grandmother or elder. Claudia Peina is well known for her exquisite maidens, mothers, and grandmothers. Her inlay and detail work is impeccable. Her necklaces are iconic. A beautiful use of greenish blue turquoise which measures almost 2 inches tall and 1 3/8 inches wide. A signed piece. $240. No Tax. Free Shipping in the USA.
