    Favorite statue representing a standing character with one hand on the navel and the other on the chest. The face is fine and exudes beautiful serenity. It is topped with a cap in the shape of a flattened ball.
    The statue still carries a small fabric bag on each arm filled with their magical charges.
    Wood with patina of use (slots), fabric, feathers and “magic matter”.
    Height: 26.5 cm
