Magnificent large frog Hand Carved from a lovely specimen of turquoise with red coral inlaid eyes and nostrils and a beautiful fetish bundle featuring a mother of pearl arrowhead, heishe beads and red coral and turquoise nuggets. Dinah was born in 1944 and is the daughter of renowned Zuni carver Teddy Weahkee. The Weahkee family is considered the oldest Zuni family to carve Zuni Fetishes. Teddy Weahke worked directly with C.G. Wallace in the mid 20th century as is considered to be one of Zuni’s most famous carvers along with Leekya Deyuse. Dinah had a long and acclaimed career with her late husband, Pete. Pete and Dinah are credited with being the first Zuni carvers to inlay heartlines into animals. They often carved water animals, including turtles, frogs, and fish. Pete has now passed,  and Dinah rarely carves any more. Dinah’s carving is so delicate and exquisite, she is considered the premier Zuni artist for hand-carved fetishes and fetish necklaces.
