In this hand made arpillera Christmas stocking, artisan Leonor Quispe of Peru brings to life the biblical tale of Noah's Ark. Two-by-two giraffes, wild boars, zebras, rabbits, sheep, leopards, and ladybugs board the ark to join alpacas, camels, and butterflies already on board. Sea creatures swim nearby and the two doves of peace fly overhead under the arch of a rainbow. Two loops are attached to the top of the stocking to allow for vertical display on a wall, or, you can hang it from your mantel for a vibrant addition to your holiday decor.
