This Frog Mask was hand-carved by Kwagiulth artist Charlie Johnson. It has been carved in red cedar, painted in black, green, and red acrylic, and features cedar bark trim.
The Frog symbolizes wealth and abundance. When a Frog is portrayed in art with his tongue touching another creature, it represents the sharing of knowledge and power. Many native cultures believe that Frogs prevent loss, which is why small Frog coins are put in purses to prevent money loss. The Haida also carved Frogs on their house posts in the belief that the Frogs would prevent the posts from falling down.
