It features a Mother and 4 children. The statue measures 10 1/2 in height and weighs a hefty 2 1/2 pounds. The detail is truly amazing and this dense wood is very difficult to carve. I have rotated in the photos so you can see the detail. There is one chip to the boys arm at the very top of the Mother's head.
I did not even notice this until careful examination. Please view and enlarge all photos to further aid in description.
