“Heroic Size Frog” is a favorite for kids to touch and climb on. The sculpture was created by William H. Turner and is located on the lower level of the museum outside of the Cypress Swamp exhibit..
William H. Turner and David H. Turner, father and son, share a talent of capturing the beauty and motion of wildlife in bronze. Their native land, the Eastern Shore of Virginia, a peninsula surrounded by the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean, is rich in wildlife and is a continuous source of inspiration for their work.
Established in 1983, Turner Sculpture, near Onley, VA serves as their studios, foundry and gallery, where most of their work is displayed. To date they have created more than 700 different limited edition bronzes and more than 100 large public commissions found throughout the United States , including several at the VLM.
