He discovered that wood had a lively nature, and out of his belief that lines should smile and that objects should have life, blood and a heart and should make people want to pick them up, his wooden animals were born.
In addition to his animal collection, Bojesen also created beautiful housewares in wood, and his studio produced a number of bowls designed by Finn Juhl. His works are characterized by simplicity and clean lines.
In the 1950s his animals became so popular that the monkey was exhibited at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. In 1990 Rosendahl bought the rights to production, and they manufacture the animals today.
