Title

The Corn Mother

Description

In front of you is my portrayal of The Corn Mother— the central figure in a Native American myth that describes the origin of corn. One version of the myth describes the sprouting of corn from the places where a woman’s corpse, that of The Corn Mother’s, is dragged (by some accounts, She gave consent to be killed). Via Her death was She able to feed a hungry tribe.
