More About this Item

Description: **Originally listed for 100.

** A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this lot will benefit The Fowler Museum at UCLA **Guatemala, 20th century CE. This is a charming piece of folk art that may once have been a child's toy, a soldier dressed in a red uniform, with a sensitive face, curled hair, and articulated arms. The state of his feet suggest that he may have once had boots of a different material. Size: 4" W x 13.25" H (10.2 cm x 33.7 cm)
