Frog fetish by Ricky Laahty
Zuni frog fetish by Ricky Laahty, made of an unusual type of dark gray jasper, with reddish and bluish flashes. It is 1 1/8" tall, 1 3/8" by 1" wide at the bottom. This fetish was handmade by Zuni artist Ricky Laahty, who is famous for his frogs. Signed and dated on the bottom with "Ricky Laahty 3-21-15". 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.
