Polepole Miniature Wooden Animals - OkapiT-lab
Polepole (poh-leh poh-leh) means slowly, slowly in Swahili, and this is how these whimsical miniatures are created. Handcrafted by skilled artisans in Bali from albizia wood, a fast-growing dense white wood native to the South Pacific. Each piece is painstakingly carved and sanded to a satin finish, with no oils or lacquers, then subtle details are hand painted, like the distinctive markings of this "zebra giraffe" Okapi. Sturdy enough for child’s play - beautiful enough for home decor.
