This petite wooden figure is actually a hand-carved slingshot created by a Maya artisan of Guatemala. Traditionally used to hunt small game, slingshot handles were carved of dense hardwoods into decorative forms such as animals, people, or mythical figures. A charming example of this folk craft, the painted slingshot is elevated for display on a custom steel mount.
