A wonderful piece of folk art! This is a child's carousel ride carved wooden Bull. He is in park paint (park paint is applied to amusement park rides during the off season when the original paint is worn, it is not as refined as the original paint). The paint and surface have a wonderful worn age and the ride has some early repairs so he was on the ride for a long time. We have mounted him on an iron folk art stand for displaying, stand is included.
This is a from an animal menagerie ride, possibly a traveling ride which would be taken from place to place.
Found in Mexico City this ride was more than likely carved in Mexico as were many of the child's rides.
We put it's age at early 20th century or older.
The bull is 28" long x 13" tall x 6" wide, on the stand he is 18 1/2" high.
