Product Description

Hand-carved wooden slingshot of a Quetzal bird or Maya man combination
The Maya Indian men, particularly those in the altiplano around the town of Nahuala, carve wooden items for their daily use. Pipes and hondas (slingshots) are the items most commonly encountered.

This is very simply carved wooden slingshot depicting a quetzal bird or bird/man combination. It has a patina of actual use, and may be 10-20 years old. It is of the style being currently made for personal use, and is usable if equipped with the rubber sling. It is carved from a hardwood, and looks like maple or cherry. Overall length is about 5.3 inches. A nice example of typical indigenous manufacture.
