This exquisite little figure is masterfully carved from black serpentine and hand-polished to a soft gloss finish, its intricately drilled eyes, and string-cut detailing near the mouth, arms, and legs bring this miniature to life. The drilled suspension hole through the shoulders is threaded with a modern 18K gold chain that can be adjusted for a perfect fit.
