Frogs are rare in the desert and sacred in Zuni where they are considered to have healing and purifying qualities. Rosella Shack's rich marble Frog has hopped in at about 2 3/8" long, 1 1/8" wide and 3/8" tall. Wide set eyes, nostrils and a back inlay are from colorful turquoise. The lovely designs on this friendly water creature are achieved by a technique of ornamentation called sgraffito in which a surface layer is incised to reveal a ground of contrasting color. It also creates a bit of texture as well.
