David Chavez Jr.'s tijilite Frog
is a happy one. It's about 1 7/8" long, 1 1/4" wide and 3/4" tall. Amphibians are amazing water creatures. They absorb water through their skin, so they don't need to drink it. In the Zuni way, a frog (Dakkya) is a sign of water. Water is life. Frogs often appear on prayer bowls since many of the Zuni prayers and dances ask for water in the form of rain or snow.
