ZUNI POLYCHROME FROG FIGURINE circa 1970


This caught us by surprise. Yes, we know that Zuni loves all water creatures and has painted frogs and appliqued sculpted frogs on its pottery for more than a centry. But a cuddly pink cartoon frog like this doesn't match up with anything else we've ever seen out of Zuni, and if the potter hadn't kindly identified it for us on the bottom, we probably would have thought it was a quirky Cochiti piece. The only thing we can say with any assurance is that w've never seen anything like it before and probably never will again.
