This is a frog that has been handcarved by an artist from Bali and/or Indonesia. If you have never seen this type of artist sculpture you are in for a treat! Each item is different because the artist pick them up from the roots of trees and then carve a shape into them.

This is a frog, perfect for the frog lover and/or collector

He is perched on top and has intricate detailed carvings to his feet, legs, and eyes.

A beautiful collectible! See photos!

Taken from waynesword website about one of these items history----

Certain tropical mistletoes leave perfect attachment imprints on the host stem long after they have rotted away and fallen off. These club-shaped or mushroom-like malformations of the host wood, intricately sculptured by the impressions of the mistletoe haustorium, are called "wood roses." They are a perfect cast of the parasite's haustorial attachment. In Mexico and Bali, host stems bearing wood roses are carved into all sorts of beautiful figures, including fish, birds and reptiles. These wood roses are not to be confused with the Hawaiian wood rose (Merremia tuberosa), from a yellow-flowered climbing vine in the morning glory family. Known to Polynesian travelers as "wood rose," the enlarged, dried calyx surrounding the seed capsule resembles a lovely rose carved in wood and polished to a satiny-brown finish.

Parasite wood carvings from Bali and Indonesia. The unusual flared wood rose or gall (red arrow) is an imprint (cast) of the haustorial attachment of a tropical mistletoe. This placenta-like outgrowth is where the host tree supported the large, domelike absorptive organ of the mistletoe. In parasite wood carvings from Indonesia, the host wood is often the chinaberry tree (Melia azedarach) of the mahogany family (Meliaceae), although other woods, such as acacia and mango, are also used. The chinaberry tree is native to Asia and is naturalized in California and throughout the southern U.S.
