Add a touch of creativity to your decor with our vintage fish.
Bozo fish puppets are made in Africa and are popular art pieces in many parts of the continent. These carvings are usually crafted from local hardwood and hand-carved.
The African fish sculptures are hand-painted, which adds extra color and texture to each piece. Unlike our other series of multi-colored Bozo fish, these are painted in subdued colors, providing a more organic and natural appearance to the sculptures.
Folk art showcasing animals is commonly found in markets and local craft stores all over Africa. It’s highly valued for both its aesthetic appeal and symbolic significance. Fish, in particular, are regarded as symbols of fertility, prosperity, and life. Therefore, they’re highly sought-after art pieces for important events such as weddings, birthdays, and other celebratory occasions.
Why I love them:
I love how they have a slightly worn patina, giving them a vintage appearance.
Dimensions: about 12″x4″x5″ — 30x10xh13 cm
These wooden fishes are old, carved, and painted by hand. Some imperfections are part of their charm and guarantee their authenticity.
