A creamy white fishrock, serpentine horned toad with turquoise inlaid eyes. Carved by Dantette Laate, the toad as incised lines on its back symbolizing he toad's skin. Danatte has also inlaid a small jet, coral and spiny oyster Zuni sun face then surrounded it by four dots. The horned toad lizard represents longevity and self-reliance and there's a link in Zuni belief between the horned toad and lightning; deriving from the zigzag spikes and horns found on the head and ridges on the back.
