Calm, Cool & Collected Frog

By Brandon Calavaza

Animal: Frog, Material: Found Stone
This offering is sold.

Frogs can sit patiently and motionless for hours waiting for a tasty treat to fly by. Because their eyes are located at the top of the head, species that spend much of their time in water can sit still with only their eyes emerging above the surface. All the better for watching unsuspecting insects.

Brandon Calavaza's wonderful water creature has been smoothly carved from a nice-looking found stone. Eyes from verdant malachite look attractive inlaid to the golden swirling hues of the stone. A generous turquoise point offering is given to this approximately 2" long, 1 7/8" wide and 1 3/8" tall frog. It caresses the back of this amphibian in a lovely manner.

In Zuni Pueblo, prayer bowls are often decorated with frogs and traditional dances are given asking for water in the form of rain or snow. Frog fetishes are associated with abundance, fertility and cleansing.
