Penguins Design Hans Bunde by Architectmade
The wooden Penguin was designed by Hans Bunde in 1954. He designed them as a gift for his two sisters. There are two sizes, the Large Penguin is 26 cm high and the Small is 18 cm high all ready to move out in to the world. The Penguins are made of beech wood and are hand painted. The painted back represents the gracious plumage of the bird whereas the unpainted chest reveals the natural qualities of the beech wood. The Penguins are particularly graceful and together they form a beautiful decoration on a dresser, in a cabinet or on a table.
