    I was given this by my husband for my birthday yesterday and again he has baffled me. This little sculpture measures approximately 4 inches tall. There are no markings but this small item is quite hefty and weighs in at 1/2 of a pound. Maybe solid silver? I did the ice test and it melted it pretty quickly I know I have seen the face of the man on something before perhaps Egyptian. The animal he is riding doesn't look like a horse - maybe Llama? All information is greatly appreciated.

      It does seem folk art-ish but so attractive and quirky!

      Thanks for the comment racer4four - it is very primitive looking but it is very detailed-especially the back end of the animal - lol.

      Bobby725 thanks for leading me in the South American direction. This piece is a Peruvian museum replica from Alva Studios.
