For the Zuni People, invoking the summer rains insures a successful harvest and revitalization of Mother Earth. The cleansing downpours represent the reinvigoration of the Mind and Spirit.
This tiny frog bears a great responsibility by using his prayer to Summon the Rain Gods. His burnished fur robe is detailed with ancient symbols of rain and fertility. He sports a stoic face with his detailed hands folded in prayer.
Hand carved of a Deer Antler crown and inlaid with 4 types of Kingman Turquoise, Fox Turquoise, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, Carico Lake Turquoise as well as Lapis, Mediterranean Coral, pink Japanese Coral, green Serpentine, Black Pen Shell and Gold Mother of Pearl drops of assorted sizes.
