Hi Riyan! Thanks!
Yes, the majority of them are made of wood; the dolls, the chickens and the mermaid are made of "cabaça", which is a dry fruit very used in handicrafts and also as kitchen stuff, such as cups, bottles, bowls, water-pipe, etc.
About the wave pics, I'll try to put its links in order to download them! Please wait for a while, ok?
