Spain’s Good Luck Frog

Next to the Gran Madrid Casino’s gate, stands a big and seemingly outlandish frog. This bronze sculpture, created by Eladio de Mora (alias dEmo), was installed in April 2014 as a gift from the Gran Madrid Casino.

Spain’s last casino closed 90 years ago when gambling was forbidden during the Franco regime. To honor the return of casinos to Madrid, the Gran Madrid Casino gifted the lucky frog to the city. Why a frog? A frog was chosen for its symbolic fortune in many cultures around the world, particularly in the Chinese Feng Shui tradition.
