Produced to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Danish company Kay Bojesen, the Kay Bojesen Wooden Monkey Figure is a reissuing of the famous 1951 design, now crafted from various types of discarded wood. The woods’ different shades add even more character to this cute fellow, who is perfect for the kids’ room or as a decorative object.
Features of the Kay Bojesen Wooden Monkey Figure include:
- Moveable arms, legs and neck joints.
- Each monkey’s stomach, paws, mouth and eyebrows are all made from Limba wood like the original monkey, named “Abe”.
- Other woods used include a combination of ash, carbonized ash, beech, mahogany, maple, oak, teak and walnut. Since the variety and quantity of woods vary with each monkey, they are all unique.
- The monkey’s paw has a special 70-year anniversary stamp on its paw and comes in a wooden box to commemorate its limited edition.
- Sitting, the monkey measures 7.9”h.
