Three Corn Maidens Saddle Blanket
The Three Corn Maidens design tells the story of the Pueblo people's belief that just as the sun gives life to the corn, the Corn Maidens bring the power of life to the people. The blanket was designed by Isleta Pueblo artist Mary Beth Jiron as a celebration of her acceptance into the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Jiron attributes the concept to visions she had and the desire to tell a story from her own culture in which corn is the staff of life and often the center of ceremony. Three Corn Maidens is the second design in the American Indian College Fund's series of student-designed blankets. The Three Corn Maidens design won first place in the student blanket contest. The 82% pure virgin wool/18% cotton, unnapped jacquard fabric is woven in our own mill in Pendleton, Oregon. Dry clean. Made in the USA. 66" x 40".
