He's huge, he's fabulous, he's a pet who's no trouble! Soft sculpture to wear, our adorable hand-made silk and glitz lizard or iguana attracts Major Attention when pinned atop a shoulder. He also makes a stunning display piece for your home.

This hand-made, one-of-a-kind creation was acquired in the late 1970s from the leading crafts spot in the Santa Fe/Albuquerque area, Mariposa Gallery. A massive 8 inches long and 4 inches wide, he (or she) was seldom worn and is still like new - featuring a riot of shimmering fabrics, beads and trims, and even a mouthful of amethyst crystal. Yummy.

've heard that the artist, a woman, was one of the gallery's stars back in the day. I wish I knew her name. If you do, please enlighten me.
