Frog/bird fetish by Ricky Laahty, made of travertine
Zuni frog fetish by Ricky Laahty, made of travertine. It is 3/4" tall, just under 2" wide and 1 3/8" deep. This fetish was handmade by Zuni artist Ricky Laahty, who is famous for his frogs. This particular fetish has another carving on the bottom of a bird which he has recently started doing. It is also signed on the bottom. Made of a really beautiful, smooth stone, this frog has a lot of character to it.
Frogs represent fertility and abundance, and they bring the rain, which is important to all life on earth.
