Pre-Columbian Gold Frog

This is a gold frog in the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum.  One of the things that amazed me about the museum's collection, in addition to the skill and artistry of those who created the items, was how the artists were inspired by the animals of Costa Rica.

People come to Costa Rica today because of the popularity of ecotourism and the wildlife and natural beauty of Costa Rica.  The pre-Columbian cultures also admired the wildlife.

This week we have photos of the Trinity College Library in Dublin, Ireland posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

That really is beautiful and when you think about how it was crafted so very long ago, it becomes even more inspiring.

Our oldest daughter collects frogs of all kinds, wood, glass, etc. She would be thrilled to have this one in her collection, I think! So far she has no frogs made of gold.
