Details

Sir Zebra puts his ears back thoughtfully as he prepares to speak. Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya crafts a personable doll from crocodile wood and dresses it in handloomed ikat cloth. The word means "to knot" in the Malaysian language, and the threads are tie-dyed before weaving.

The doll can be posed in a variety of positions. Semarajaya suggests it can be displayed alone or on a base.

"Fun item for my bookcase"

The talking zebra is one of a few of these wooden creatures that grace my bookcase. The woven garb that clothes them is extremely unique and gives them personality.

"Yeah! My Talking Zebra has arrived! FUN!"

Oh Happy Birthday to me. Thank you so much for making Talking Zebra available again! Talking Zebra is sitting on my desk right now looking at me... thinking about what he wants to say. Right now... he is playing a game with me. I am supposed to guess what his name is. These dolls are just so much fun.... So amazing! I will eventually get all three of my dolls together (Mystery Cat, Story Teller Horse and Talking Zebra) ....and will imagine the conversations.

I just received my Storyteller Hippo. It is as delightful in person as it is in the photos online. I am impressed with the beautiful artwork that makes this storyteller doll unique. I would love to order at least one more so that the hippo has company. Thanks for sharing your talent!

The ""Lotus Buddha"" came today, and I am beyond pleased! This piece has definitely exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much for creating such beautiful work!
