Cousins Todd and Stephan Poncho, brother Alex and Gordon all learned the art of fetish carving from Gordon's father Dan Poncho, and in turn Gordon taught his son Tyrone to do the same. It is the way and tradition of Zuni fetish carving families to pass down knowledge of technique and the artistic process to the younger generations the oral tradition of all the Puebloan tribes.

This frog is created from a blue-green variety of turquoise. The eyes are inlaid of penshell and the raindrops on its back are inlaid of red coral. The fetish is initialed gp in his normal manner. These amphibians are traditionally created as a prayer for rain, snow and dew. Need some precipitation in your neck of the woods?
