Frogman

The last time I was in Park city, I visited a store that displayed all of Frogman's works. Frogman originally had started out making sculptures of birds but he really became well known for his frogs! Frogs in all sizes and shapes, Frogman takes the basic frog body plan and superimposes human emotions and abilities of thought converging both these with a certain agility that almost makes his creations come alive. My favorite is the frog and the caterpillar with a half eaten leaf. In its own way this sculpture celebrates the most mundane event in nature!
