Toad fetish by Michael Coble, green serpentine
Zuni fetish frog or toad, made of green serpentine, with inlay green turquoise eyes. It measures 1 3/4" tall, 4 3/4" wide, and 5" long, so it is a bit larger than most of our other Zuni fetishes. This fetish was handmade by Zuni artist Michael Coble, and it is signed on the bottom. The toad has great realistic detail and texture, and he is sitting on a rock with leaves.
Toads and frogs are associated with rain, abundance, water, and fertility, and they bring the rain, which is essential to all life on earth.
