    This was found in an estate sale. It's marked frog woman on the bottom. It's 8 X11 mi believe the artist is joy Navasie not sure of when it was made.

      Sorry, but this is not the work or signature of Joy Navasie. "Frog Woman" (and it's two words, not one) is an inherited title. The first Frog Woman was Paqua Naha. Her daughter, Joy Navasie, was the second Frog Woman. And her daughter, Marianne Navasie is the current Frog Woman. None of them ever signed "Frog Woman" or "Frogwoman." They signed with a large drawing of a frog, which differed in the way the toes were drawn in the case of Paqua and Joy, and with the addition of a "tadpole" and sometimes the name Marianne in the case of the current Frog Woman.

      I have never seen this signature before, but it is obviously the attempt by someone to deceive. It appears to be affixed to a standard mold-made ceramic vase form, available through wholesale supply outlets in Gallup, (and probably elsewhere.)

      The painting appears to be well-done, but the clay body does not look like Hopi clay, and the style is definitely not that of Frog Woman,
