Wooden animal heads
Enjoy these whimsical, hand carved wooden animal heads from Malawi, as wall decor or as hooks to hang your special items.
Every animal head is individually crafted by Bangwe artisans in the tradition of wood carvings found across Africa, making each one 100% unique. Imperfections should be expected and simply add to the charm of your handmade wall hook.
Malawi’s artisans have a centuries-old craft tradition using natural resources and generations of indigenous knowledge. What they don’t have is access to modern design, a platform to sell their products and the knowledge and funds to set themselves up as proper enterprises.
People of the Sun helps low-income artisans build sustainable businesses, which will raise their income and standard of living. In turn this will preserve their cultural heritage and ensure indigenous skills survive for the next generation.
Choose from a natural or black finish, elephant, rhino, giraffe, flamingo, buffalo or impala head in large, long or small sizes.
