Tree Frog Animalia Art
I am a Green Tree Frog (Litoria caerulea) and am one of the largest Australian frogs and one of the most widespread of Australia's amphibians, found in all states except Victoria and Tasmania.. My scientific name caerulea means 'blue', which was the colour of the specimen that arrived in London in 1790.
We think the alcohol preservation may have altered our true colour, fooling the early scientists.
Size: 21cm x 15cm
What is an animalia animal made from?
Our animals are laser cut from 3mm Corten® Steel.
Will my animal rust?
Yes – our animals are made from Corten which is designed to rust. This gives them long term protection against the elements, and a beautiful patina that shifts with the seasons.
What is Corten steel?
A copper chromium alloy steel, Corten is weather resistant – it’s designed to rust quickly, which gives a layer of protection. It means that our animals last for decades, with a patina that changes with the seasons.
