Serpentine Frog by Herbert Halate

$ 45.00

A yellow/golden ocher colored serpentine frog with turquoise eyes inlaid to the raised eyes sockets. Carved by Herbert Halate, there are 5 turquoise dots inlaid to the frog's back suggesting rain drops; we believe. 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: Herbert Halate (signed)
