This is a rare fetish choice for Zuni fetish carver Randy Lucio as we have
never seen one! It was discovered in storage by our fetish source that were purchased quite
a few years ago and you have an opportunity to acquire a fetish that not too many fetish
collectors have seen let alone purchased. It was created from a large slice of gold-lipped
Mother-of-pearl weighing 2.6 ounces. Her hair is blowing in the breeze which is common at the
continental divide near Zuni Pueblo.
Randy has extensively inlaid corn kernels of stones the colors of which are
common to the high altitude small cob corn of the deserts and mountains of the west. The eyes
are inlaid of jet, the mouth of red coral, the necklace of Sleeping Beauty turquoise and the corn
kernels of red coral, jet, Sleeping Beauty turquoise, sugilite and gold-lipped Mother-of-pearl.
The majority of her flowing hair is the gold portion of the shell which Randy purposefully made
happen as most experienced Zuni fetish carvers can read the seams and trace the colors through
shell and stone. The fetish is signed simply LUCIO on the bottom of the corn maiden. This is a truly
well carved and thought out fetish design. Do not let this one end up in the collection of some other
Zuni fetish affictionado.
