January 26th - Frog within a frog



This is a cute little frog-within-a-frog sculpture I picked up not too long ago. I know it's a bit difficult to see the inner frog, but if you look in the second hole down from the top left, you'll see his eye. :) Kind of represents the inner frog in me, I guess. ;) So maybe that should be a phrog-within-a-phrog. :D I'm not entirely sure what it's made out of, but I'm guessing soapstone. They definitely aren't cast, because each one looked very different from the next. It took me a little time to choose one I thought was cute enough. ;)

What's it made of I wonder. Looks quite glossy - a bit like soap. A nice green addition to your gallery. A very appropriate choice of subject as well.

this is interesting, if it is jade, I would have no idea how they could make this. If this is out of polished polymer then I know the method and it is very cool. And yes, this is definitely green ;-)

I love those. I collect elephants and I see these types of elephants from time to time, but I have never seen one that I felt attracted to enough to buy. Nice lighting.
