Native American Hopi Carved Corn Maiden Katsina Sculpture by Virgil Long

Of all the women who appear with other Katsinam, the Katsina Maiden, or Katsinmana, is the most prevalent. If her face mask is blue, she is known as the Blue Corn Maiden, similarly yellow corn, etc. She appears at Soyal ceremony and marks the beginning of the Katsina season by marking the openings to the kivas with cornmeal. This particular sculpture has a corn stalk with the four colors of corn on the front. Placing this Katsina in your home, particularly on an altar, shows respect for the many gifts we receive each day from Mother Earth. This gentle maiden reminds us always to be thankful.
