Jadeite Frog by Lance Cheama

$ 75.00

A dark olive green jadeite frog with convex carved eyes and incised dots all over the body by Lance Cheama. The two front legs meet in the center and are carved in the round from the same stone with the back legs splayed out creating a symetrical balance. Frogs are the result of water so are associated with the prominence of rain & are used to encourage the growth of crops. 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.
Artist: Lance Cheama
Size: 1-3/4 in. long x 1-1/2 in. wide x 7/8 in. tall
