Polepole Wooden Animal - Handmade - Penguin
Polepole (poh-leh poh-leh) means slowly in Swahili, which beautifully describes how these little animals are created. Each animal is hand carved from a soft light wood and then hand-painted with the sweetest expressions and patterns. Due to their handcrafted nature, each polepole animal is slightly different.
These Japanese wooden collectibles are all handmade in their artisan workshops in Bali.
At first, they cut a rough form of the animals on solid wooden boards. Then they are dried in an oven. After that, they are finished by hand, polished with sandpaper and all hand-painted.
As all animals are hand painted, they all have unique facial expressions.
