Little boy

Större bild? Klicka på den! - Click to enlarge!
This is a small figure, 34 mm from top to toe. I took a shot of it in this position as it usually is in my bookshelf.

Then I noticed a flat spot on his head. This boy is not lying down, He is standing on his head. :)

 This is a memory from my mother. I believe she received it from her brother somewhere in the 1950th. He was in Africa then to establish a fire station. What country he was in I don´t know I was only a child at the time. It is made of metal. Might be bronze and nicely worked with lots of detail.

Tired of snow I, today, share with you a family snippet.
