Serpentine Frog by Douglas Martza

$ 95.00

A large cream and lime green streaked serpentine frog with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Douglas Martza. Douglas has inlaid eight turquoise dots on the frog's body then added a pink mussel shell dragonfly to the offering bundle that is mounted to the top of the frog's back with sinew. 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 frog sings its song reminding us of our watery beginning. Both the frog and dragonfly are harbingers of rain - they are honored in Zuni for rain is the essence of life.
Artist: Douglas Martza
