2008 Arabia Flora & Fauna Plates
In 2000, iittala Arabia started a collectors’ series of art plates. Finnish fables that imaginatively tell about folklore and the richness of Finnish nature were selected to be the theme of these collectors’ items. Two art plates – one square and one round – that depict the animals and plants that appear in the stories are released each year.
For 2008, iittala Arabia presents us with the Frog and the Willowherb. This pair of art plates is based on the fable of the Dove’s eye and the frog’s ear.
