Coqui Frog

The coqui frog is a national symbol in Puerto Rico and the species is currently endangered. Many Taíno Indian stories and legends include the Coqui. The beloved coqui frogs are found in much of the Taíno art such as pictographs and pottery. The coqui frog symbol, used to design the Taíno Museum logo, has been discovered in Utuado graves in Jayuya, Porto Rico. This picture show all the symbols discovered on this area. In 21st century, the Taíno  coqui frog is now a very successful symbol used in Art and Fashion industries as decoration, tattoos, necklaces, clothing… and future Taíno Museum in Haiti.
