If you’ve ever encountered a Bird of Paradise plant, chances are you mistook it for a tropical bird! Named after the species of birds with the same name, this plant reveals a striking head of crane-like petals. In Paradise, Frogman captures the beauty of this flower with absolute precision and attention to detail. However, the frog in the sculpture is not impressed or interested in this striking plant. It has its eyes on the ladybug and stretches across the plant’s stem for a closer look at the creature. Frogman opts for bright patinas for both the frog and ladybug, creating a cohesive blend of vibrant colors.
The sculptor carefully portrays the delicate nature of the plant and the liveliness of his amphibious subject. Paradise is a brilliant piece that highlights Frogman’s flawless craftsmanship.
