This may be the tiniest Corn Maiden we've ever seen!  But, as we all know, tiny does not indicate might, proof being microbes that can be beneficial or cause great harm.  This tiny Corn Maiden would only bring blessings, as all Corn Maidens do.  She is the right size to fit in a small leather pouch to be worn or kept in a place where you can be inspired by her.  More about Corn Maidens below.

Size: 1.675" H x .375" W

Corn maidens represent everything good about being a woman: strong, kind, compassionate, nurturing, and powerful.  There are many Indigenous stories about how corn was brought to the people at a time when there was hunger, and how a sacred, sometimes other worldly, female being brought them corn.  Corn maidens come with a card detailing the meaning, the carver, and the material they are carved from.

Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal.   Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
