Details

Native raintree wood is used to create this pleasant little smiling frog by Jaifah Aksornsri. Using techniques passed down to her by her parents, the artisan finishes the instrument naturally, which accentuates the natural grain of the wood. A rod is included as part of the design, and can be used to create a fun, frog-like croaking sound when rubbed against the back of the frog as a percussion instrument. The Tenasserim frog is a species native to Southern Thailand.

"Adorable Elephant"

I love this cute little guy. My husband collects elephants and this is one of our favorites. I bought two of them to represent our two children. I like to pick them up and feel the smooth rounded surfaces. Unique and really well made. A great gift.

"So amaxing"

This came to us all the way from Thailand in perfect shape and absolutely gorgeous. I have wanted one for years, and this is the perfect size. I can easily put a candle or incense on the landing. It is truly a work of art and unique, guests always comment favorably.

This elephant is a delight. I love the design and it feels very smooth to the touch. It also is bigger than I thought it would be. Very pleased with this purchase!
