The wooden house is painted light blue with yellow, white, and blue painted cornice. At the ends are stenciled black "rose" windows. There are four stenciled black 9-paned windows in white frames per side. In each window, the vertical middle row of panes is half the width of the other two rows. The roof is painted to simulate orange tile. There is a dove painted on the hinged side of the roof. The flat base is painted blue with brown underside shaped to resemble a boat. Twenty-seven ring-cut animals include camels, giraffes, elephants, cattle, horses, pigs, hogs, and ducks. Also included are five figures -- four women and one man. There is also one large palm tree with leaves made from wood shavings.
