A handmade painted wooden Noah's Ark. A simple rectangular house shape on a narrow platform, shaped to a point at either end. One long side slides out along a groove. This has four windows painted along it, with a painted band above. These four windows and banding are repeated on the other fixed side. This banding is painted in two stripes, yellow and brown and runs all the way around the ark. One end has two windows downstairs and one below the roof. The other end has a central painted red door with yellow painted handles. Above is a single window. The roof, painted red has a dove painted in brown and blue on one side with a green painted leaf held in its beak.
