Vintage Zebra Hand Carved Wood Sculpture African Savannah Wildlife Carving Hand Painted Stripes

This vintage hand-carved wooden statuette of a walking zebra measures about 4-1/4 inches (10.8 cm) high by 7-1/4 inches (18.5 cm); the wood is dense, and the piece weighs 10.7 ounces. It is carved in a naturalistic but in a somewhat rustic folk-art style, with the tan color of the lightly sanded and finished natural wood showing between hand-painted black stripes, hooves, and mane. The density, grain, and color are consistent with wood of the muhuhu, or African mahogany, a tree indigenous to Kenya that is traditionally used by local woodcarvers there. There are no maker’s or origin marks on the carving, but it appears African in style, subject matter, and material, and was likely made in Kenya.

The figurine is in good vintage condition, with perhaps a little age darkening of the satiny surface finish and a few small dents, some of which may have originated in manufacture.
