Ian Bracegirdle’s sculpture captures the Spotted Marsh Frog, a species found in the nearby Tarralla Creek Wetlands, as it perches on reeds.
The dynamic pose and engaging features of this artwork may endear it to local families, but the subject matter is also a reminder of the fragility of urban ecosystems. The sculptor captures a local species quite literally, in the balance.
