Description
A macehead is a symbol of power, authority, and an object of destruction. The dog heads could represent food, companionship, warmth, or a guide or visitor to the underworld. Turn the macehead over and there are two horned frogs, a good source of a hallucinogenic drug. The poison allowed a shaman access to other worlds. The frog is associated with renewal, change, or transformation and fertility.
