Ornament | hand painted | platypus

The Platypus is such an unusual creature that when it was first discovered it was thought to be a hoax. The national symbol of New South Wales, these curious looking, semi-aquatic, egg-laying mammals are nocturnal and notoriously shy but known to come out on cloudy days.

Outer Island's hand-made ornaments bring the magic of Australia?s native plants and animals into your home. Perfect as Christmas decorations, souvenirs or special gifts, each ornament is artfully hand-painted and produced using sustainable, natural materials.
