Ricky Laahty frog fetish
Frog fetish by Zuni artist Ricky Laahty, made of serpentine, with mother of pearl and jet inlay eyes. Measures 1 1/2" long (nose to tail), 1" wide, and just over 1/2" tall. The bottom of the fetish is carved in the shape of a butterfly, and has the artist's signature. Frogs are associated with rain, abundance, water, and fertility, and they bring the rain, which is essential to all life on earth. Ricky Laahty is known as a very skillful frog fetish carver.
