Lapis Lazuli and Citrine on a Quartz base
3x3x3
2002

Artist's notes: "The Poison Arrow Frog", is carved from high quality Lapis Lazuli, the birthstone for September.  
Its eyes are faceted citrine, the birthstone for November.  The base is a quarz specimen that I found in the
Jack-fish River, North of Lake Nipigon.     
Poison Arrow frogs are highly toxic.  Their brilliant colours serve as a warning to potential predators to "stay away".  
Indigenous Embera' people, of Columbia, use its venom on the tips of their blow-gun darts when hunting.
