These full body paper mache models were very delicate and not many survived. The condition is amazing. Almost all the paint is there with some flaking. It has some of the best original paint we have found on an early paper mache model. These were all hand made and hand painted. Its highly detailed with pins and hooks that hold everything in place. It must have taken weeks to produce. The model sits on an interesting serpentine cast iron base and is 63 inches tall. Biology was not my best subject and this is not a puzzle I would be good at but it may be missing a couple of internial parts… SOLD
