Serpentine Frog by Dana Malani

$ 54.00

A grass and dark grayish green serpentine frog with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Dana Malani. Dana has incised a texture to create the frog's skin and the frog appears to be smiling up at the viewer. 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. The frog is a harbingers of rain thus they are honored in Zuni for rain is the essence of life.
