BENIN
WOOD LEOPARD 2
20" high x 62.5" long (36" without tail) x 7.5" wide
$800

Larger and less numerous than the famous Benin bronze leopards, wooden ones were made bulkier and with less realism.  The tail is a seperate piece that is easily removed for shipping.

Note that two legs have bumpers on them for levelling. The tops of both ears were broken off and replaced (see details).
