Mexican Brown Wood Sculpture
I was very impressed with this sculpture of Kukulcan. Although it is fairly small, the detail of the pyramid is outstanding! I got this for my sister after our excursion to Chichen Itza this summer to see the REAL pyramid. She really likes it!
This fella is almost a foot tall and every bit as mischievous in person as his pictures show him to be. He was SO WELL WRAPPED that it took a couple of minutes to "find" him amidst all the tissue paper and his ears and horns are packed separately in a small packet and must be assembled (a wise choice of the carver, I'm sure). His long, long and slender neck and legs, coupled with the wonderful giraffe hide paint job are so cute. I am so happy with him. He just makes me smile every time I see him.
