LITTLE RED - Acrylic Desk Block

Cootapatamba Hut, Kosciuszko National Park, New South Wales, Australia 

I was camped next to this hut for four lonely nights, not seeing another human for five days. The first two nights, my tent got buried in snow and the visibility was very limited. Breaks in the weather however permitted chances to witness this hut against the impressive backdrop of its alpine surrounds. Dark and dingy inside, when the hut is buried in snow, it is accessed via a door at the top of the 'chimney'.

The little red hut is a beacon for those seeking to escape the stormy weather that can come in very quickly around Mount Kosciuszko. It makes for a striking appearance against the white snow and clouds, easily seen amongst the desolate winter landscape.

Since taking this photo, Cootapatamba Hut has since been replaced by a completely new build replica in early 2019.

Available in three acrylic desk block sizes:

  • 10cm x 10cm (2cm deep)
  • 19cm x 19cm (3cm deep)
  • 30cm x 30cm (3cm deep)


Our acrylic desk blocks give the photo a three dimensional look. They are perfect for desks, bookshelves, mantlepieces, bed side tables - any horizontal surface.

The photo is printed on professional grade metallic photographic paper, using archival inks. It is then mounted on the back of an acrylic (plexiglass) block. It is finished with diamond polishing, buffing and final hand polish.

They are free standing, so no hanging system is required. These are a very popular option for gifts, farewell presents or if you need a small lightweight option to travel with. Acrylic desk blocks come in a box ready to gift.
