This offering is sold.
Rickson Kallestewa's alabaster Frog embraces an offering jar decorated with an incised  raincloud and tadpole design. This sweet faced healer is stylized with swirling curved lines. The incised details are darkened with pastes made from the dust of jet and pipestone for a rich brown color which compliments the soft brown alabaster. A representative of water and rain, frogs often sing their songs during rainstorms. This piece measures about 1 3/4" long, 1 1/4" wide by 1 1/4" tall.
