African Malachite Frog Sculpture Figurine Handcrafted - Congo DRC
One of the many Malachite works of art that I purchased while in Africa; this ceremonial frog was handcrafted in the Congo D.R.C. approximately mid-20th century. There is one photo above that shows scratches on the bottom of the frog.
Copper is abundant in the Congo and so is the Malachite found with it.
A useful as well as beautiful work of art.
It is said to have healing, protective and peaceful energy properties.
