Intricately carved coconut, good patina. Face on one end with a mouth formed by a wedge-shaped hole below a mustache, nose, and mother-of-pearl eyes. Depicts Diego Rivera on one side, Frida Kahlo on the other. Adorned with a carved Mexican eagle, flowers, etc. An unusual and seldom seen form of Mexican folk art. [23524] {K90} <+>
