Mother Frog carrying baby

by artist Detreck George from the Coast Salish First Nation, Duncan, BC, Vancouver Island. He used a nice piece of yellow cedar, stained and hand painted it after carving in great details. The expression is wonderful. Just a great piece to start or add to any collection. It also makes a great gift. It's signed at the back, made and prepared for wall hanging.

Measurements: 12" x 6" x 1/2" (30.5 x 15 x 1.5 cm)

Meaning: The Frog is a very important Symbol in the Northwest Coast Art and Culture. Since he is living in two worlds, water and land, the Frog is revered for his adaptability, knowledge and power to traverse worlds and inhabit both, the natural and the supernatural. Frogs are used by Shamans as spirit helpers who provides the voice of the people. Frog's songs are believed to contain divine power and magic. When a frog is touching his tongue with another creature (which is often shown in Native Art) it represents the exchange of knowledge and power.
