Frog fetish by Ricky Laahty, tiger jasper
Zuni frog fetish by Ricky Laahty, made of an unusual type of tiger jasper. It is 3/4" tall, by 1 1/8" wide and 1" deep. It has another image on the bottom of a pelican or bull frog. This fetish was handmade by Zuni artist Ricky Laahty, who is famous for his frogs. The stone is very interesting and has a smooth feel. The funny, quirky frogs are characteristic of Ricky Laahty's style, and this one is a fantastic example of his work.
Frogs represent fertility and abundance, and they bring the rain, which is important to all life on earth.
