Rich in both detail and meaning, this beautiful Indian maiden is the epitome of gentility, hope and harmony with nature. In her palm the maiden holds a delicate hummingbird, symbolizing optimism and tenderness. In her other hand she holds a pahos, or prayer stick. The backdrop of a shimmering August moon is interwoven with the symbols of abundance, wisdom and gentle strength. Stitch count 243 x 187, 17 ½ x 13 ½ inches finished. The maiden is designed as a companion piece to Joan's *Indian Warrior.* For 40 more designs that embody the spirit and earthiness of Native American culture, check out Joan Elliot's Native American Cross Stitch
