This frog has a secret!  It has one arm tucked behind its back and who knows what it is hiding?  Just look at that face with those big turquoise blue eyes...always makes us smile.  It has twelve coral dots inlaid dots on its body.  More about frogs below.

Size: 1.5" H x 1.25" L x .875" W

Frogs begin life in the water as tadpoles, grow legs and are able to be on land or lily pads.  They go through a profound transition and are related to water and land.  Female frogs lay many eggs at once and are associated with fertility.  The frogs are known to sing before the rains come in Zuni Pueblo.  During droughts people will bury frog carvings in the Earth to invite the rain to come.

Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal.   Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
