Antler Frog by Raymond Tsalate - Zuni Fetish

$ 1,260.00

An anthropomorphized muscle building antler frog stands upright on its hind legs and feet looking up at the viewer with dark mother-of-pearl and green serpentine inlaid eyes. This 'healthy' frog was carved by Ray Tsalate and delivered to Sunshine Studio in November of 2018. Ray has added thirty eight different sized dots all over the face, legs and back of the frog - utilizing hand made dots created from Mediterranean coral, copper, Sleeping Beauty Mine turquoise, lapis and malachite to name most. 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 frog sings its song reminding us of our watery beginning. Frogs are harbingers of rain thus they are honored in Zuni for rain is the essence of life.
