Woman-In-The-Moon Earrings by Denise Wallace (late 1980's)
These classics are Sterling Silver and Fossilized Walrus Tusk Ivory. This is an early pair of this design and their obvious popularity foretold so much of Denise's work to follow. These earrings are about 1.25" tall at the outer edge.
From the artist: "This design comes from a mask carved by both Eskimo and Athabascan natives. The idea of the woman in the moon reminds us of our sister who became the Moon. The designs on the cheeks or chins were added by our neighbors, the Athabascans. We have included these designs in our work. This design is one of the pieces I have worked with for some time. The first "Woman in the Moon" reminded me of my grandmother. As a result, I think of her through the design."
