This figural box, made from sustainably harvested wood, represents the diversity of the animal kingdom. A totem for individual ambitions and traits, its simple and gestural depiction is intentional—maintaining the animal's symbolism. With the addition of hinges, it will also guard your tiny treasures. This is a great holiday gift for anyone with a taste for baubles, bric-a-brac, and bracingly unusual boxes.
