Large Plaster Sculpture of an Arab Merchant Holding a Tray

About

This colorful and fun sculpture is not only a joy to look at, but a useful accessory. It can be a card holder in a shop, or a cup holder by your chair just to mention two uses. It is very hard to find plaster objects of this size and so colorful. Those that are left are usually in pieces. While this has a couple of repairs, it is still very worthy of putting it in a choice area.
