Hand-carved Lounging Hound

Regular price $60.00

I really love the face as well as the ultra long body of this carved wooden dog, which I understand from the seller was found in Cuba years ago. I'm terrible identifying species but with its long snout I have to think a hound, and looks maybe like a Borzoi to me? A good combination of elegant and just a bit goofy, looking as if luxuriating in a favorite spot, perhaps in front of a fire, and as if casting a smile in one's direction--and almost as if giving a wink!

7 9/16" l x 2 1/8" d x 3 3/16" t and in very good condition. There is a super minor split to the wood of the base at one far corner, no real matter. Carved of an exotic/tropical hardwood I believe.
