Wooden hand painted animals
A range of exquisite hand crafted wooden animals from Swaziland.
Also, some tall, rustic giraffes from Kenya.
Hand painted wooden animals
The animal range of small hand painted wooden animals comes to us from the small, but beautiful, country of Swaziland. Each animal is carved by hand, and then individually painted by local craftspeople. Each animal has a main base colour, but the decoration on each one varies in both design and colours. This ensures that each one is quite unique. We’ve found these hand made wooden animals are very popular with children, who like to try and collect the entire range.
Bazaar Africa also has some tall giraffes, which are made in Kenya. These have also been carved by hand, and decorated with paintwork, mostly fun spots! As you can see, they are quite different from the mini Swazi animals, more subtle colours, and a more rustic style of painting.
