I remember this piece as a child. It was in my Grandmother's house and I have no idea what happened to it or who originally did the piece. It is powerful enough to be one of my strong childhood memories. This is an extremely high quality Bronze reproduction of that piece. It is 15" long and almost 15" tall. The weight is about 4 pounds. If there was a piece that evokes a feeling of magical adventure, this is it. This definitely is an heirloom quality piece in every way and I guarantee that you will love it.
