African Decor│Colonial Wood Figures

About: These fun African home decor pieces are individually hand carved wooden “Colonial figures,” representing an unusual mix of African and European cultures. There are no two men or woman alike, and they stand on their own. They come in a large variety of colors, shapes and sizes, and are more striking in pairs or groups of three or more.  Smaller Colonial figure sizes are also available to purchase as well as life size figures. By that we mean the colonial figures have almost normal size figures (full-figures) as far as the width goes.

For the most part these “full-figured” colonials are all male sculptures and they have outstretched hands, in order for a tray to rest in their arms, as seen in below image, taken at Chitwa-Chitwa- game lodge in Kruger National Park, South Africa.  In this instance the colonial figure was placed in the bathroom holding a tray with toiletries, they can also be placed in an entrance of a home with welcome drinks.  How about a waiting room with magazines stacked on the tray, the creative possibilities are wide open.

Tall Skinny Sizes: Range from 1.5 Meters – approx 2 Meters tall (last image seen in this post)

Small Skinny Sizes: There are also smaller colonials available to purchase approx. 1 – 1.4 Meter tall, however these smaller colonial figures have a minimum order requirement.

Full Figured Small Sizes: Are approx 1Meter Tall.

Full Figured Sizes:  Are approx. 1.3 – 1.5 Metes tall most of these colonials have their hands stretched out in front of them, however there are some with their hands in their pockets.

Available Colours: 99% of the colonials are wearing white pants and the colour options comes down to the jackets – most common colours are; Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, White.

Male Colonial Figure Hat Options:  The red fez hats or the white pith helmets are the 2 options and here and there you may find a bald guy, the latter are very rare.

Chitwa Chitwa earned its name as an affectionate ode to the aging giraffe bull who shared the lakeside home as an extended member of the Brink family.  According to owner Charl Brink, the majestic arrival of this regal relative was signaled by the creaking of his old joints. Still today, his watchful spirit presides over the lodge. Much like this giraffe, the lodge is magnificent and elegant in appearance, yet modest enough to disappear into the surrounding beauty of the unspoiled bush of the Sabi Sand.
