A master of detail, much sought-after Oaxacan artisan Eleazar Morales has created this wonderful lying dog. The style is known as a "hang dog," which is a carving that lies flat with its head hanging over the edge of a shelf and looks down. The body of the very curious dog is a mottled mocha tan accented with darker mocha and rust free-form markings. The face is highlighted with tan around the eyes, nose and mouth. Lots of detail is evident on the eyes and nose. See second photo for a full body view from above. Approximate dimensions: 11" Long x 6" Wide x 5" High.
