physical_description
Figure of a frog and a goddess. The frog is squatting, and has prominent eyes and spinal ridge. On his underside a nude goddess, perhaps the earth-goddess Prithvi, issues from a pouch in the creature's stomach. She wears a girdle, necklet and earrings. The underside of the frog's forelegs coincide with the upraised arms of the goddess. The subject my symbolise the Sun (frog) and the Earth.
