The maiden in Hopi Maiden—caught mid-stride, one arm akimbo, the large painted pot expertly balanced on her head—has what it takes, and she knows it. The Princess Leia “squash blossom” does tell the world that she is of courting age. She seems to know that the eyes of at least one of the characters sitting on the upper pueblo wall at right are on her. She is beautiful, she knows it, and she doesn’t care who else knows it. The Force is strong with her. What’s more universal than that?
