Onyx Frog by Jayne Quam

$ 60.00

A red sienna, maroon, cream and brown spotted onyx frog carved by Jayne Quam looking up at the viewer with big turquoise inlaid eyes. Jayne has added bits of shell and stone to the center of the frog's back in her cloisonné style creating a Milky Way star-scape. 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. The frog is a harbingers of rain thus they are honored in Zuni for rain is the essence of life.
