This statuette is 13″ tall and weighs 1.5 pounds. It was carved from a dark ebony teak type of wood. There are no indications on the base on where it came from. I use it in my home office as a support for my banjo thermometer recently submitted to the museum.

      I checked this figurine all over for any marks that showed where it came from or when it was made. The wood appears very dense. Upon closer examination, I noticed she is carrying what looks like a large pineapple on her left shoulder. When I first got it, I thought she had a large flower in her hair over her ear.
