Large Copper Frog

Outside of a clay chiminea shop just before Shelby County Junction 444 on Highway 280 stands a ~20 foot frog made of green-painted copper. Stopped briefly on our way to Birmingham to see it, didn't get out of the car.

We know Roadside America's fetish for large sculptures of men and animals, so we thought we'd send this in.
