Turquoise* Frog by Leland Boone and Daphne Quam

$ 75.00

A soft blue turquoise frog with a gray matrix and coral inlaid eyes carved by the couple Leland Boone & Daphne Quam. Daphne's fine bundle is strapped with sinew around the frog's girth & features her heart shaped arrowhead - this one is carved from spiny oyster. 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.
Artist: Leland Boone and Daphne Quam (signed)
