Jet Frog by Andres Lementino

$ 150.00

A big jet frog with turquoise and jet inlaid eyes carved by Andres Lementino with his signature Zuni sun face inlaid on top of the frog's back. The double sun face is composed of turquoise, coral and clam shell inlaid 'sun rays', with a turquoise, coral, jet and clam shell inlaid sun face. The Sun face is an ancient symbol in Zuni culture, representing the sacred Sun Father. The symbol's round motif depicts the Sun with a forehead split down the middle to reflect the eternal balance between sunrise and sunset. 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
