Description
This lively female llama, slightly smaller than her male counterpart, wears a halter around her head, suggesting her status as a beast of burden. She has a very ladylike demeanor, aloof and proud, which transcends the comic roundness of her form. Although the artist has chosen a fairly naive mode _f expression for this creature, it is evident that he has studied the llama closely, for he has caught its personality perfectly. HT.22cm(8 3/4IN): L.27.5cm(10 3/4IN) - (K.076)
