Windstone Editions "autumn Leaf" Frog Wizard Figurine, Fantasy Statue:
WINDSTONE EDITIONS "AUTUMN LEAF" FROG WIZARD
This is our “Frog Wizard” figurine painted in an "autumn leaf" color scheme. This frog was painted by Melody Pena, and she has signed him on his felt pad. This is a Limited Production color, meaning we will continue to paint more as needed, but we may retire the color at any time.
This little frog is airbrushed in
a mixture of cream, brown, black, emerald, and russet. His
wizard hat is painted in metallic purple and decorated with metallic
gold stars and moons, and he holds a dichroic backed crystal ball that glows with pale orange, yellow, green, and blue
rainbow colors when viewed from the front. He has light metallic green glass eyes and a glossy finish.
This frog is mint with a hang tag and measures approximately 3-3/4" tall. He ships in his original box direct from our Windstone factory in Oregon.
This piece is for indoor use only.
PLEASE NOTE - The frog you receive will not be identical to the one pictured here, although it will be extremely similar. These frogs were airbrushed individually and free-hand so each one will be a little different.

Since 1984, museum-quality reproductions of Melody Peña’s sculptures have been perfectly cast in natural mineral stone and meticulously hand-painted in our North Hollywood, California studios (now relocated to Corvallis, Oregon).
At the heart of every piece created by master sculptor M. Peña is the artist’s passion for living creatures. This passion, coupled with a lifelong study of animal behavior and anatomy, and an astonishing gift for three-dimensional art, results in sculpture so intriguing and lifelike it is without equal.
Growing up in California, Peña surrounded herself with animals. Keeping more than two dozen aquariums in her childhood bedroom, a pet toad in a wastebasket, and a chicken in a bucket, her collection of pets soon became the subjects of her artwork.
In college, Peña studied biology and zoology in addition to painting, drawing, and sculpture.
Today, the artist is never far from her animals--they are the living well from which Peña draws inspiration and the models for the incredibly accurate detail in her work.
