Vintage Carved Ironwood Penguin


This guy. So simple and handsome.

Hand carved in dark ironwood, the penguin is streamlined and sophisticated. The ironwood sculptures come from the Sonora state of Mexico. The wood is native to the Sonoran desert and the Seri community of indigenous people have carved the wood for centuries.

The penguin stands 9" tall x 3 1/4" wide x 2 1/2" deep. He weighs in at 2 pounds 10 ounces.

Recommended cleaning - If the wood looks dry use a little butcher block oil on a soft cloth and wipe into the grain of the wood.
