Artist Statement : The frog has many supernatural abilities. They are a highly respected animal and are used as power sources by medicine people. Some ancestors received their croppers from supernatural frogs. In the Tuxwid ceremonial dances certain women will give birth to a frog as a symbol of her connection to this powerful animal.
