Sculpture: 'Tree Frog (Carved Crafted Amphibian sculpture or statue)' by Tony Mayo
An exquisite tree frog beautifully sculpted from an exceptional piece of Baltic Marbled Butterscotch Amber from Poland. The base is Peltogyne wood better known as “Purple Heart” from Costa Rica.
Made completely by hand without the aid of power tools taking 140 hours to complete. Made with materials collected during my explorations to 93 countries around the world. Difficult to reach and deep undercut angles were all hand polished to perfection. Even unseen areas were carefully worked and hand polished. Exquisitely carved from an exceptionally fine piece of Baltic Marbled Butterscotch Amber; this is a truly rare and one of a kind sculpture! It is difficult to see in these photographs, but there is a human face in the mouth of the frog.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
