Lepidolite Frog by Burt Awelagte

$ 50.00

A small purple sparkle/glitter lepidolite frog with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Burt Awelagte. Burt has added a lovely offering bundle to the top of the frog's back with sinew featuring one keshi pearl surrounded by a turquoise bead and melon shell heishi. The Zuni believe the frog is a reminder that we are all the same - development wise - we begin as tiny fishlike creatures in the womb then we evolve from swimmers to creatures of the land. The frog sings its song reminding us of our watery beginning. The frog is a harbingers of rain thus they are honored in Zuni for rain is the essence of life.
