Description
With his elegantly curled tail, delicate filigree, and broad smile, this golden scorpion seems to have fallen to earth from his place among the stars. This is a rare and stunning work of art, part realistic observation, part imaginative flight of fancy--a scorpion such as one would find in paradise. 61.1 grams - (PF.0744)
