Artist's Description

Open for interpretation – Challenge yourself to thought processes behind this one – the frogs were a nice sugar hit after a 10 km hike around Uluru!

Much like the Honey ant these frogs are indicative to a warm semi arid desert. Prized for thier sweet flesh and high antioxidant values. They are not easy to find but due to a prolonged spate of hot weather in the central region of australia they were seen in limited numbers migrating to a more accomodating region assisted by whats known as a ‘homosapien’. They generally roam in ‘packs’ and easily spotted by thier bright colouring. They are vulnerable due to this however and tend to be easy pickings for most two legged species. They have been known to be attacked by armies of ants and flies which tend to regard them as a delicacy providing much needed nectar for long term survival.
They are known as ‘froggis nectaris colouris’ and have only recently been discovered in the last ten years. :P

This is to highlight the fundamental differences between two societies and how we often taken ( or i have ) some things for granted. How easy it is for us to go to the supermarket and grab what we want while others forage for survival. How it can be delivered so easily..think of the cost to the environment while others have lived on and off the land for thousands of years and don’t add to green house gases or destroy the environment. Just food for thought really..
