BENIN
WOOD LEOPARD 1
21 " high x 56" long x 8.5" wide
$800
SOLD

Larger and less numerous than the famous Benin bronze leopards, wooden ones were made bulkier and with less realism.  This one shows no signs of age or use and was probably made to be sold.  The tail is a seperate piece that is removed for shipping.
