I love this guy. He is very stark and basic, but I love his lines. He reminds me of the Phantom of the Opera. The intricate lines and his starkness make him interesting. Just a smidgen short of 9 inches. He is carved from redwood. This redwood is more brown than some of the "redder" redwoods, which just shows how wood can have so many variations. It is possible that he has faded a bit through the years as well. Readable signature on feet.
