Frog fetish by Ricky Laahty, serpentine
Zuni frog fetish by Ricky Laahty, made of green serpentine. It is 6/8" tall, and 1" deep by 1 5/8" wide. This fetish was handmade by Zuni artist Ricky Laahty, who is known for his frogs. The bottom is signed, and also shaped like a butterfly, which Ricky Laahty has been doing recently. This frog has tons of character. Love the expression.
Frogs represent fertility and abundance, and they bring the rain, which is important to all life on earth. Fish are also associated with water and rain, and dolphins represent loyalty and friendship.
