One often sees snakes, jaguars, crocodiles and eagles connected in this manner to the figure of the shaman who was a key central personage in the pre-European societies in lower Central America. inspired by Pre-Hispanic jewelry, features as the central amulet, a stylized frog which is a recurring theme in the region’s mythology of this epoch. Besides the attractive design of this piece, the jade cut chosen for this amulet is a striking, liquidy forest green colour.
