Frog Jewels

Continuing Frog Week, here is poison frog number 3, Ranitomeya Uakarii. I think these are my favorite poison frogs. The colors are just amazing! They truly are jewels of the rainforest.
Poison frogs are very small, so my paper sculptures of them are small. All my poison frog paper sculptures fit in a clear baseball card box, 3 ½ x 2 ½ x ¾ inches deep. The lattice work on this piece took almost 8 hours to cut out the holes. With all this intricate work, I should have been a surgeon. I know it pays a lot better.
