What a wonderful piece of art! This 18” long curly tailed lizard frame is made of steel wire with hundreds of colorful glass beads strung on individual wires. Even his coiled tail is beaded. He eyes are two large glass beads suspended in a wire ring. To add “heft” to its legs, thin wire was wrapped around a larger wire which also forms his feet. He is 5 ¼” at the widest and 4” tall. Many of these sculptures come from artisan villages in Africa, but since there is no signature or tag, I don’t know where this one is from. The lizard is in excellent condition with no loss of beads.
