Term: Corn Dolly

A simple figure made by weaving wheat stalk together to form a symbolic figure that is symbolic of fertility and the harvest-oriented aspects of the Goddess. In most English-speaking countries, the term “corn” refers to any grain except maize. In the US, however, corn only refers to one grain: maize. Corn dollies are not made from the husks or cobs of maize.
