Well-known Oaxacan artisan Eleazar Morales is the creator of this incredible mythical figure called a Chupacabras. It is delicately and intricately carved, with the front of the body incised and painted a rose, wine and green pattern; the back and vertibrae are painted in turquoise with a dark blue freeform pattern with orange and purple highlights. The curving tail and the back of the legs are painted wine and purple with black highlights. The end of the pointed tail is a red and purple pattern. The head has curved horns of a red and wine combination, with dark blue and turquoise on the face (lots of sharp teeth) and eyes are orange. The outstretched claws and feet are various colors. Approximate dimensions: 8" Long x 9" Wide x 13" High. WOW!!!
