EtsyFound: Bringing The Zoo Home To You

Posted on March 18, 2008 Under Art

There aren't many more fun activities for all ages than going to the zoo (okay, maybe bowling). Unfortunately after you pay your admission it's kind of a crapshoot. Sometimes the tigers don't really feel like hanging out or the llamas are feeling especially spitty. If only there was a way to bring the magic of the zoo into your own home minus the unpleasantness of not knowing whether the monkeys will spend the day throwing their own ‘materials’ at you. Well now there is"¦and it's not the Discovery Channel. Portland based Photographer Elizabeth Soule has created an adorable collection of animal-themed prints with ‘The Little Zoo.’ Her photographs feature miniature plastic Zoo animals in settings that are anything but their natural habitat. Whether you end up getting the little deer next to the cupcake or the mini-elephant on a map, these creations, available at the e.soule Etsy store, bring the zoo home to you.
