Al Qoyawayma is famous for his pottery, but he has also created a series of bronzes.  This piece is entitled, “Blanketed Corn Maiden” and was first cast in 1992.  The design is inspired by Al’s clay work.  This is a Corn Maiden figure, wrapped in a blanket with a carved ear of corn on the front.  In clay, the corn would be in repousse or pushed out from the inside and the textured to look like corn.  The blanket is textured and there is a fold in the blanket extending downward.  The piece is an edition of 17, and this is number 2.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay “Al Qoyawayma”.  It is in excellent condition.  This is the first time we have had this bronze come back into the gallery.
