Hello Dante,

 

It is very good to see your post and your great jade toad, the creatures being one of my favorites! Very interesting solution for the eyes, using agate.

Love your work Dante, yet get such ultra realism in your carvings, the eyes are fantastic, do you have any pic's of how they were constructed?
