The traditional corn maiden is depicted beautifully in this storyteller piece by Jemez artist Chrislyn Fragua, known for these types of figurines. The corn maiden, standing tall with a tableta atop her head, showcases two children set along her body, both in corn husks, their bodies covered in kernels painted grey. The corn maiden herself, rather than standing within a husk, is covered in a traditional red blanket painted with geometric and feather designs in buff, black, and grey. Each figure’s mouth is open, as if speaking, while the maiden’s cheeks are painted red. 8 1/2″ tall x 2 1/2″ wide x 2 3/4″ deep.
