Antler Frog by Raymond Tsalate

$ 500.00

A cream faced antler carved frog created by Ray Tsalate with gold-lip and malachite eyes inlaid to the protruding eye sockets. Ray has placed the golden gray porous marrow area on the top of the head and back then he inlaid pipestone solidified slip dots on one half of the frog's back and green serpentine slip dots on the other side. Ray has told us that the dots are symbolic of rain drops. The two dot areas are separated by two jet inlaid lines that seemingly create a tail of sorts. The 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.
