This hand painted Noah's ark incorporates the dove and olive branch motif from the biblical story of Noah. I identify my various arks by their frieze. All the traditional arks are based on medieval German houses with tiled roofs, the frieze above the windows and stone quoins that reinforce the corners of the buildings.
My hand-painted animals celebrate nature’s rich variety of pattern, stripes, spots, camouflage and decoration.
As a guide I have priced this hand painted Noah's ark with 12 pairs from the main list of animals, but you can have as many or as few as you like. The ark is made from Columbian pine, and a roof and the house lift off. The animals are in lime wood, decorated using non-toxic paint and varnish.

"...when modelling a Mixed Woods Ark, special attention is giving to the animal's faces, to give them a real sense of character. What makes me happiest is all the correspondence I receive from parents saying how much their children love playing with my toys."
