Debra Gasper's parents are carvers Dinah Gasper and Peter Gasper Sr. (d). Teddy Weahkee (d) was Dinah's grandfather, an important and major carver who was known for his traditional fetishes, inlaid jewelry and paintings. Edna Leki (d) was also an iconic artist, daughter of Teddy and mother to Dinah. Debra's brother Peter Gasper Jr., also carries on in their family's rich carving tradition.
Debra's pleasant Frog of sodalite has sterling silver eyes and an endearing personality. It looks skyward in hopes of rainfall. About 1 1/4" long, 1 3/8" wide and 1" tall. Please see our selection of soft leather pouches here, as this amphibian fetish would be a wonderful one to bring along with you.

Veronica Poblano descends from the greater Teddy Weahkee (d) family of carvers. Her father was noted and iconic Zuni carver Leo Poblano (d), nephew of Teddy Weahkee.
Carved from a magical fluorite specimen, Veronica's Frog is happily nestled in crushed turquoise, to represent water. A few bits of red coral are sprinkled amongst the turquoise as well. A beautiful abalone shell is where this amazing amphibian calls home. A frog is a precious creature that imbues all the medicine we've come to appreciate from this animal. In the Zuni way, a frog is a sign of water, where there is water there is life. A frog's animal medicine is about cleansing and emotional healing.
With big endearing eyes of turquoise, along with rare sugilite accents, this collectible work is about 3 1/4" long, 2 1/4" deep and 1" tall. It comes with Veronica's sterling silver signature label attached.
