This piece measures just at 18" with the walnut base. I originally painted him without any facial decoration but was completely unsatisfied with the result. So after a little more research and a trip back to the paint table he became a completely new character. Frankly, with those piercing eyes it's hard to look away without being drawn back. So, while I had my doubts about this one he turned out better than I had hoped.
