Product Description

Peter Chapman of Bent Mountain, Virginia has created a fantastic menagerie out of wood.

His puzzles are movable sculptures; with his saw he has cut the wood in such a way that when you handle the puzzle it becomes animated.

Each puzzle has a surprise inside of it, like this wee baby hippo, and you have to take it apart to find it! The "key" for the Hippo is it's eye; remove this small dowel and then take the puzzle apart one piece at a time.

Each puzzle is signed and comes with an artist statement.

Wood is walnut. 11 in. from nose to behind, 4 3/4 in. tall, and 3 in. at widest part.
