Description

A beautiful sculpture in first quality Malachite depicting a frog, perfectly polished and full of details.
Malachite, already beautiful and fascinating when used to carve animal sculptures, seems perfect in this particular example, as first of all the green color recalls the natural colors of the animal, but the floral designs typical of this mineral, almost psychedelic, are ideal for "coloring" a frog which in some specimens, such as the Davkiet, manages to secrete a hallucinogenic substance from its skin which the indigenous tribes use for magical hunting rites.
