Illustrating the sunny conclusion of Noah and the flood, this Jim Shore Noah's Ark Tabletop Plaque is carved in deep relief from stone resin. This beautifully detailed scene combines artistic influences from quilting: Pennsylvania Dutch and European rosemaling. Rosemaling is Norwegian for "decorative painting" and is a form of ornamental painting traditionally done on wood that uses stylized flower designs, scrollwork, lining and geometric elements, often in flowing patterns.
Showcasing Noah and his wife, Noah's water bound ark, pairs of two animals, a rainbow bursting through fluffy white clouds and a dove holding an olive branch, this whimsical table statue features vibrant colors and extreme detail. Place this faith-filled standing plaque on any table, console or side table to remind guests and visitors, "Faith will take us through the storm."
Since his grandmother was a master quilter, growing up in rural South Carolina Jim Shore always had an abiding fascination with the intricate design of patchwork quilts. After receiving a degree in business, Jim spent years honing his skills as a painter and sculptor drawing inspiration from his upbringing. Today, Jim sculpts full-time and continues to expand his world of charming characters. His enchanting figurines recall the rich, hand carved textures of traditional folk art and tell his heartwarming, down-home tales.
