What the Frog Statue in Singapore Really Looks Like
By Tom F. TothJanuary 10, 2018 10:29:06I recently visited the Frog Island, a monument to a frog carved in stone by Japanese artist Yoshimitsu Kawabata, in Singapore, a country with a population of around 10 million people.
The island is located at the foot of the Great Wall of China, the largest in the world.
It was once the home of the famed Chinese artist who painted the world’s largest sculpture of a duck on the Great Pyramid of Giza.
The monument features a large, white and yellow frog that can be seen standing upright.
The Frog Island’s owner, who has a business selling artworks to tourists, was reluctant to discuss the significance of the sculpture, saying he was too busy with his business.
But he did reveal that the sculpture is actually a giant turtle.
The giant turtle, or pug, was first spotted by photographer Ken Watanabe in 2006.
Watanabes image of the giant turtle was the inspiration for the giant frog sculpture.
The giant frog was originally intended to symbolize the unity of all living things and was inspired by the “great spirit” of a turtle.
Its creator, Kawabatas son, Yoshimasu Kawabats father, Yoshinobu Kawabas grandfather, and other members of his family, were inspired to make the frog after the Japanese government ordered the destruction of the original sculpture.
Watanabe was taken aback when he saw the giant fish in the water, which he had never seen before.
He realized it was the frog and asked the people at the statue’s creation ceremony if he could use the water to paint the frog.
The water was then used to draw in the air and create a white and orange frog.
The painting process took two days and cost about 1,000 Singapore dollars ($1,050).
The giant frog, which was painted using oil, is on permanent display in the Gardner Museum, which also features a giant bird statue and a giant rock sculpture of the Buddha.
The giant frog has been a symbol of unity in Japan since the early 1900s.
It is one of the symbols that forms the country’s official flag.
