Jungle Frogs

Thomas Roos's avatar Thomas Roos

I want to highlight three different South American tree frogs by carving them larger than life. They have beautiful markings that would be difficult to see at their normal size of 1-2 inches, so I have made them 6-10 inches long. To give my sculpture a jungle look, I have painted recycled vinyl flooring to look like over-sized leaves that the frogs are climbing on. I enjoy challenging myself to carve different animals and displaying them in nontraditional ways.
