Leonard Halate (d) was well known for his whimsical, folk-arty carvings of dinosaurs and alligators. Brandon Phillips, Leonard's grandson, pays homage to his grandfather and offers a delightful peach alabaster creature with a ridged spine topped with spikes. The alternating colors of the stone are perfectly positioned at the head to highlight the turquoise inlaid eyes and nose, as well as the tail. The carving measures about 3" long, 7/8" wide by 1 1/4" tall.
