Imagine your very own zoo, filled with your favorite animals, on a one of a kind treasure box made just for you!
The box you see was created for a specific little girl, Ever, who just loves animals. She had some favorites she wanted to see, like raccoons, kitties, deer, rabbits, and rhinos. I added several more to round it out in a free-roaming, park-like setting, and this was the result!
The box top shows the zoo's grand entrance, guarded by a noble bald eagle, and a very curious giraffe. A couple of monkeys are hanging out in the large tree, beneath which a deer stands in a small patch of lilies-of-the-valley (Ever's birth flower). The deer is gazing over at a raccoon and chubby little squirrel, who are having a snack of yummy acorns. A sign behind the raccoon points to the next attraction...the aquarium!
Turning the corner of the box, you see a large aquarium filled with colorful corals and tropical fish--with a very alert black and white cat watching them intently...I wonder what she's thinking? A dolphin is leaping out of the water just to say hello, and as you turn the box again, you see a sea turtle and a land tortoise engaged in some intense conversation through the glass wall, while a mama rhino and her baby amble peacefully down the path. As you turn the corner again, a camel paces by in the distance, a mama kangaroo and her joey stop to check *you* out, and a couple of rabbits decide to see if lilies-of-the-valley taste as good as they smell.
This design can be customized to include elements specific to YOUR child--birthstones, birth flowers, favorite animals, inside jokes, little details that would make it personal and meaningful, plus your child's name will be hand painted on the zoo's entrance sign. If you'd like to see additional photographs for details, just ask!
