Model Bush Taxi 12cm


Handmade model Bush Taxi or taxi brousse from Madagascar. This type of vehicle is a mainstay of public transport in Madagascar, especially for rural and long distance trips. These colourful vehicles have passengers seated inside while large items of luggage go on the roof outside.

Each model is crafted from recycled materials by tinsmiths in the villages around the Madagascan capital Antananarivo. The parts are cut without use of a template before being soldered together, making each completely unique. For this reason I have photographed each separately and put them on as individual listings.

Wheels turn, luggage on top with passengers inside

Made completely of recycled metal

Ideal for office, home, garage, café

Lovely gift for Birthdays, Christmas or Fathers Day

I have personally met the people who make these models and and pay a fair price for the crafts they produce. Information booklet included with each example.

12cm in length. Size may vary slightly
