Victorians Loved Frogs





Victorian frog musicians

I love the idea of anthropomorphizing amphibians! I found these reproduction Victorian era images online - I think you can get them through Dover Books. Here are some photos of me carving the image in wax.
Find them in my Etsy shop.

Thanks Lori! There's nothing better than a blank wax to carve!
