Frog - 1/2” Sterling Silver BraceletJohn Lancaster (Kwakwaka'wakw)
"Frog is a creature of great importance in Northwest Coast art and culture. As a creature that lives in two worlds, water and land, the frog is revered for its adaptability, knowledge and power to traverse worlds and inhabit diverse realms, both natural and supernatural. [They] are the primary helpers of shamans...In the art, Frog is often shown sharing its tongue or touching tongues with another creature in an exchange of knowledge and [transformational] power" (Shearar 2000: 47-48) - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crest, Beings and Symbols
