Hand Carved Wooden Noah’s Animals Tea Party
There is much to love about this sculpture set, from the table carved in the shape of the African continent to the simple symbolism of animals coming together as friends. This informal gathering of the big six, perhaps during teatime on Noah’s ark, features a lion, elephant, giraffe, leopard, rhino and zebra.
This joyous and unique artwork comes to us from a talented group of Kenyan artisans who are skilled at carving jacaranda, a prolific tree in East Africa. Each animal is hand-carved and hand-painted, as well as the table and beverage accessories.
Imported by a member of the Fair Trade Federation.
Materials: Jacaranda wood, paint
Size: table irregular shape 6 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ tall; animals 4 1/2″ tall
