most wonderful frog we have ever seen.
For a fetish carving, this frog is very large. Wonderful to hold or admire as he sets securely on your desk or bureau.
Carved from a wonderful piece of Picasso Marble with eyes of inset turquoise.
He has a cool feel and you won't be able to resist turning him over to rub his belly where the detail continues.
and signed by Zuni artist
Frog and turtles have appeared in carved jewelry since prehistoric times.
Considered the major rain-bringing fetish, the frog is also associated with abundance and fertility.

Picasso Marble (or Picasso stone) is a carbonate rock of diverse natural colors such as gray, brown and black and with seemingly randomly oriented transecting black veinlets. Much of Picasso Marble comes from Utah. Read more about stones.
