Leopard Marble Frog by Ryan Awelagte

$ 50.00

A small cream, golden ocher and grayish black veined leopard marble frog with turquoise inlaid eyes. Carved by Ryan Awelagte, this frog has a lovely offering bundle perched on top of its back featuring a keshi pearl at its center with turquoise beads and melon shell heishi. 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.
