Wall Hanging Frogs and Geckos

Some of Tim Cotterill’s frog and gecko sculptures have been purposely designed for wall mounting which enables them to be displayed on a wall using a hidden fixing. This fixing does not prevent them also being displayed on a table or shelf if desired. Please contact us if you would like any further information.

Which Sculptures Are Suitable For Wall Mounting ?

Tim Cotterill sculptures for mounting on a wall

( Please note that Phoenix is a special edition of Hang Loose which is also available for wall hanging )

All of the Gecko sculptures can also be wall mounted.

How Are The Sculptures Fixed to a Wall ?

Sculptures hang on walls with nails

All the wall hanging frogs above hang from nails which have been put into a timber panel which is fixed to the wall.

Depending upon the frog, these nails have to be positioned at angles to ensure correct alignment with the hanging hole in the base of the frog.

For this reason, it is easier to use nails instead of screws and to fix into timber rather than directly into masonry. You can also use tape or blue tack on the head of the nail to protect the inside of the hole in the frog from damage.

What Are The Types of Fixings for Wall Mounting ?

Two of the frogs.. Little Wally and Gemini… have metal fixings which have been screwed into the frog for hanging purposes. (Little Wally shown on left)

Gemini can also be positioned at any angle desired on a wall, as it has two fixing points.
