Mexican Frogs & Lizards

These beautiful hand-painted wall ceramics are incredibly vibrant and represent Mexican folk art at it's very best. Although we have entitled this page Frogs & Lizards the ceramics are, in fact, Frogs & Salamanders, the difference being that lizards are reptiles whilst salamanders are amphibians ... anyhow ... enough of the biology class ...
 
We offer fast delivery and a gift wrapping service - check the options available on the basket page.

Large Ceramic Wall Frogs (roughly 25cm x 20cm)
Hand painted

Guanajuato is a beautiful mountain colonial town in central Mexico northwest of Mexico City. The name of the city means "Place of Frogs" in the local Tarascan indigenous language and the frog is the city's official pet. These wall mounted ceramic frogs are painstakingly hand-painted in brilliant, velvety, high contrast tones. They're stunning to look at and cost next to nothing to feed.

Salamanders have long been important in the folklore and mythology of many different countries around the world. Fantastic powers have been attributed to them throughout the ages and they are still held in high esteem in Mexico.

The Mexican Hammock Company provides a regular source of income to many small rural communities in southern Mexico. The provision of a local income and investment in small-scale local enterprise often alleviates the necessity for younger people to move away from their families and friends to high population centres in search of employment. The net effect is often a strengthening of the rural community and stimulation of the local economy.
