Introducing Alfie by Frogman

It has been an exciting week on the sculpture front also with a new shipment from Frogman and Brian Arthur in the gallery and the announcement of a very exciting new release.

It was announced this week that Frogman’s 2017 owl sculpture will be the super cute ‘Alfie’.

‘Alfie’ follows on from his predecessor, ‘Arthur’, who was an equally stunning little owl who sold out quickly upon release.  From an edition of 500 worldwide, ‘Alfie’ will be arriving in stock in April but is available to pre order now to avoid disappointment.

Included in this weeks new sculpture arrivals is ‘The Hunt’ by Frogman.
