For some changing home decor is Seasonal. Currently we are in the heart of Winter and no other animal harkens the season better than the Penguin. With their teamwork in staving off the bitter Antarctic cold the Penguin like no other animal not only survives but thrives in this hostile cold climate.  Capturing this in art is the Penguin Figurine 4 Penguins on Ice Flow by John Perry and featured online by Animal World on their Penguin Gift Store page. Made of Pellucida with detailed hand painting the Penguin Figurine  shows 3 Penguins in the classic at attention pose while the 4th Penguin prepares to dive into the water off the ice flow. Measuring 5″ long x 4″ high and 4″wide it is designed for eye level display on a mantle, wall shelf or curio cabinet high shelf. For commercial decorators working to achieve an Antarctic display the Penguin Figurine can be integrated with a mirror laid flat to provide an element look of water, cotton balls to create the illusion of snow at waters edge and the Penguin Figurine John Perry 4 Penguins on ice flow positioned so it appears as if the one penguin is diving into the icy water. With three simple items, the mirror, cotton balls and the Penguin Figurine you can create an action filled Antarctic Winter scene. Additional Penguin Display items are available in realistic looking penguin toy miniatures mini animals also available on the Penguin Gifts Store page mentioned earlier.
