Description

Though antler is getting harder to obtain in New Mexico, it is still one of the preferred mediums for fetish carvers due to is softness. This wonderful frog is a a beautiful representation of older fetishes carved in the early 1900’s. The piece shows great use of the shape of the elk antler leaving the frogs head whimsically wider than normal. The frog is a common fertility symbol in the pueblos and is credited for water and rain. The piece was carved by Robert Wehake, a seasoned Zuni carver with a knack for recreating older fetish designs and putting modern spins on them, like the simple heishi necklace this piece wears. 5” tall x 4” wide
