Christopher Sandoval is surely a talented artist using the most scrumptious materials available. The gift of fetish carving runs through his blood, as his father is acclaimed carver Melvin Sandoval. Christopher recently brought by this exquisite and realistic Bat, and just in time for the October season, as many bats are moving about now. Some are swarming to ready themselves for hibernation, while others are preparing to migrate to warmer places. Using a gorgeous Picasso marble, you can feel the naturalness of this winged mammal. Turquoise inlaid eyes are set into an eager face that's incised for a furry effect. Other areas of this approximate 2 3/8" long, 2 5/8" wide and 1" tall bat are incised for lovely detail as well.
