Noah's Ark Folk Art
This 15-year-old Noah's Ark is in the classic German Erzgebirge style and was crafted by Jennifer Beers of Mulberry Lane Folk Art. During the 19th century, a Noah's Ark was sometimes called "The Sunday Toy" and considered appropriate for children on this day of worship.
Beers's modern version includes painted figures of Noah, his wife, and 10 pairs of animals, which can be displayed around the ark or stored inside. The roof opens to put the pieces away. Of course, the animals could also go up the ramp two-by-two!
The wooden base is 24" long x 10" wide. The ark is 13.5" long x 10" wide.
