      What is it made of, ceramic, cloth, papier-mache, can you tell?

      Looks Indian, I'd say off hand.

      I was thinking maybe vanilla bean pod
      Thanks for your comments.

      Oh I thought it was a large piece, and you meant the beans were inside rattling! So this is a small piece, the size of a vanilla bean pod? What is the size?

      This piece also reminds me of the Mexican diablitos.

      This is some definite window shelf action for me...love it! That's a natural dried type of bean. What you hear are dried ...like peas in a pod, but dried to make the noise like a rattle snake OR I forget what they're called but it sounds like rain when you slowly tilt it. Sorry if I'm the only one that knows what I mean...hahaha

      Like a rattle or maraca, shareurpassion?

      I never knew a bean pod could grow this long! :)
