Squash Maiden reaches with vines outward to the fertile soil as rain clouds gather in the horizon below dragonflies announcing there coming. Squash, Corn and Bean are known as the Three Sisters. Planted together, they support and benefit from each other. Corn gives Bean a place to climb upward and Bean gives nutrients to the soil. Squash covers the ground around them, protecting and preventing insects with prickly hair covered vines.
