Salt River Canyon Serpentine Frog by Clissa Martin

$ 42.00

A soft grayish green and cream streaked Arizona Salt River Canyon serpentine frog with jet inlaid eyes that look up at the viewer carved by Clissa Martin. Clissa has inlaid her signature dragonfly to the center of the frog's back - utilizing bits of apple coral and turquoise. Both dragonflies and frogs are the result of water so are associated with the prominence of rain. As well, frogs are used to encourage the growth of crops in Zuni. 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 frogs sings its song reminding us of our watery beginning.
