This offering is sold.
Lionel Sanchez's Toad (or Frog) is carved of a gorgeous found stone. A stone that looks like a toad, or is it a toad that looks like a stone? Following his family's tradition of walking the landscape in search of animals within stone, Lionel recognized this water loving amphibian, took it home, and with a little carving and sanding, turned the stone into a toad. About 2 1/2" long and 2 1/4" wide.
