Finest quality and superb craftsmanship by Doug (Bear) Horne:

Dancing Frog

This sculpture is hand carved from one solid piece of bass wood. The frog is not glued or screwed onto the base - it's ONE piece! Isn't the expression fantastic? This frog clearly has some fun and is enjoying life...

Clean carving lines, beautiful clean wood, polished and left natural - this piece truly doesn't need any paint, it looks alive and is clearly a proof of Doug's love for this art. He is such a talented artist and his works are easy recognizable. You can also see the influence Doug's dad Doug LaFortune had in his works, but Doug found his own style and clearly developed a fine eye for design. Have a look

Measurements: 14" x 6" x 4" (35.5 x 15 x 10 cm)

Meaning: The Frog is a very important Symbol in the Northwest Coast Art and Culture. Since he is living in two worlds, water and land, the Frog is revered for his adaptability, knowledge and power to traverse worlds and inhabit both, the natural and the supernatural. Frogs are used by Shamans as spirit helpers who provides the voice of the people. Frog's songs are believed to contain divine power and magic. When a frog is touching his tongue with another creature (which is often shown in Native Art) it represents the exchange of knowledge and power.

Note: overseas shipping available, costs added at check-out
