Frogs are welcomed as rain-bringers – they live in and around water, so symbolize this most precious commodity. Water is essential for thriving crops and, therefore, enough to eat. By extension, frogs are good-luck symbols.
This large frog is fluidly carved from a very reptilian hue of natural serpentine: The smooth texture and watery green and grey color is quite froggy.
The legs and back are realistically defined. Dots of natural jet are inlaid across the back, and the eyes are bright blue turquoise.
The body is realistic, but his friendly expression is a product of artistic license.
It makes this handsome frog a table fetish/sculpture that is will delight you in every season, come rain or shine.
