Malian Gilded Animal Figures

A very unique, vintage, one of a kind conversation piece such as this is a rare find. Likely a remaining part of a large marionette, the rest now lost to history, this curious decorative piece still has many tales to tell. Lovingly nicknamed "Talky Charlie" by the kanju team for its still mobile jaw and animated expression, and gilded in gold colored metallic and fabric accents and decorated to the smallest detail, the former glory of this unique 'objet' continues to shine and delight.
