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.
