Antler Frog by Raymond Tsalate

$ 470.00

A plump ivory tinged antler frog with a gray porous back & big penn shell inlaid eyes delivered by Ray Tsalate to Sunshine Studio's front porch in June of 2021. Ray has created a rainbow effect with the 46 hand made colored dots inlaid to the frog's body - utilizing Sleeping Beauty Mine turquoise, lapis, Mediterranean coral, emerald, malachite, cuprite, chrysocolla, gold-lip, sugilite and serpentine to name most. 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.
