Antler Frog by Robert Michael Weahkee

$ 68.00

A cream and brown streaked antler frog with turquoise inlaid eyes in the raised eyes sockets carved by Robert Michael Weahkee in an anthropomorphic stance. The frog wears a penn shell heshie and turquoise beaded necklace and has a speckled frog like back due to Robert leaving portions of the outer shell of the horn. 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.
