granite frog

This granite frog sculpture is in the frog pond at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory, the artist is unknown, but it was created in Japan in 1923.

The frog pond which obviously gets its name from the large granite frog in its center is located south of the conservatory and has a foggy history.

The parks website claims that this bullfrog is the last remaining piece of a Japanese Imperial garden at the conservatory.
