Description "Frog Baby" by Edith Barretto Parsons

Figure/female/baby/animal/frog/joy


"A baby girl stands with both feet together on a globe resting on four frogs. She looks upward, laughing, a frog held by one leg dangling form each hand. Feet and toes are squeezed together to hold in her mirth over the capture of the frogs. The chubby forms and infectious merriment of childhood are engagingly recorded." ("Brookgreen Gardens Sculpture", Beatrice Gilman Proske, 1968).
