Not as common, is to see a figure, like this corn maiden Kachina. Corn maidens were known for their unbelievable beauty and were often the sole desire of the pueblo men. The great spirit gave her a way to disguise herself as a kachina so she could continue to tend to the crop. She is the bringer of fertile ground for corn and responsible for maize. This figure is wonderfully carved from a signgle cottonwood root and stands on a pedestal that comes forth from a sacred woven basket. The piece is signed by artist, Felix W.Y. as shown. 9 1/4” tall x 2 1/4” wide
