This piece has a delicate white painted nose decorated with red details. The mouth has a sweet smiling gesture. High relieve carved ears combined by plastic eyes surrounded by white circles give the piece a special look. Great patina on the back and different layers of paint denote use. Monkeys are present in almost every Ceremonial Dance; they act as buffoons and have the important roll of collecting money from the public for the Religious Brotherhood that sponsors the event. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping.
