Egyptian Marble Frog, Double by Claudia Peina

$ 60.00

A striking frog double carved by Claudia Peina out of a piece of gray, black, white, and cream streaked Egyptian marble. The carving stands securely with a frog on one side having coral inlaid eyes in the raised eye sockets & six coral dots & the frog on the opposite side having turquoise inlaid eyes and six turquoise inlaid dots on its back. 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.
