This Noah's Ark and 20 sets of animals is a family heirloom. Inside the ark is storage for the animals if one wants to only display the ark without the animals.
The ark body was made from stacked plywood. The ark superstructure is made from oak. The animals are made from a variety of domestic and exotic hardwoods. Some of the animals, like the zebras and tigers, are made from glued up woods to simulate animal strips.
This is a unique design, rarely seen.
