This little Picasso marble frog is all tucked in to itself. Is it meditating, in deep thought, getting ready for a nap? We aren't sure but it sure is adorable. This little frog was in a collection that we purchased over 15 years ago and found when we were moving. The tag indicated it was carved by M.S., but we aren't sure who that would be.
Size: .75" H x .75" W x 1" L
Frogs begin life in the water as tadpoles, grow legs and, afterward can be on land or lily pads. They go through a profound transition and are related to water and land. Female frogs lay many eggs at once and are associated with fertility. The frogs are known to sing before the rains come in Zuni Pueblo. During droughts people will bury frog carvings in the Earth to invite the rain to come.
Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal. Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
