Description

Wooden. Crocodile. Painted. The body crescent-shaped, without limbs. Original label: "Hung up as decoration in a hut." As a matter of face, it was probably attached to some part of the hut framework -- there is a hole in the under side of the body which no doubt served for such attachment.
