Danette Laate carved this serene Butterfly Maiden from jasper. Her face has inlaid turquoise eyes and a jet mouth. Her body and wings have inlaid dots of turquoise, coral, and jet. Her wings and body are detailed. The jasper has a streak of a translucent mineral, perhaps calcite or quartz, that runs on a diagonal from the top of the wings to above her eyes.
