Long before any other Oaxacan subjects were explored in Arrazola a handful of carvers created toads to sell as good luck charms. The arms crossed are a tradition that evolved from the luck not leaving the sapo but recycling. Rocio paints in the original Arrazola flame style and layers it atop two other patterns. Very few can do this miraculous method of pristine painting.
