Or "The Pond Spirit's Wife" or "Madame Toad".

I recently had a few weeks off work, during which time I finished up some things that had been sitting around. I've been wanting to do something involving a toad for a long time, since I thought the textures would be fun to do and the paint job would be a good challenge.

The female character on top is something I had come up with way back when, and I decided now was a good time to finally give her a three-dimensional debut. She makes a good foil for Mr. Fatty Fatty Toad Pants. The sculpture is partly a nod to Grimm's fairy tales, as frogs and toads figure very strongly in those stories.

A turning point for this piece was when it occured to me to put a Thai style hat on the little frog girl's head.
