I love the work of David Weeks as I think I have mentioned on here, as soon as I saw his wooden animals series I totally loved them all but my favourite was always Simus the Rhino with his little eyes and cute face! So I was amazed when my lovely husband surprised me with my very own Birthday Simus to keep!!
I hadn't realized but apparently they are very hard to get hold of outside the US, so poor Rich had a bit of a nightmare tracking one down.
Simus is hand made from beech and fully jointed by an ingenious system ot taut elastic meaning he is fully posable. I can't stop playing with him!!
He look great sitting in pride of place on our mantlepiece, he goes surprisingly well with all out 60s furniture too! I will treasure him, thank you Lovely Hubby! x
