Kachina Frog by ursulav Kachina Frog by ursulav
A little blue frog in Hopi kachina gear, with fly head rattle. Back in the day, I lived in Arizona and was deeply fascinated by the kachina mythology--the colors! The weirdness! The dances! And, of course, I love frogs because no matter what you dress them in and what color you make them, they're still distinctively froggy.

This pic has found its way on my hard drive for a good while now. I think I've found it on a furry gallery somewhere - unfortunately, I didn't note the artist.
Now I rediscover it again, and I'm looking forward to check the rest of your stuff.
A very original piece, with awesome color work.

Thanks for making it!
