Hi Tone, Thank you very much. You are very helpful. What does HTH mean? The creature is a painted figurine or perhaps statue I think - can't be certain what size because the photo includes little outside reference for scale..but I think smaller than a 3year old child. Almost cartoonish with big goofy smile, bare feet, oversized head. Just leaves me wondering if there is some folklore creature that this could be representing.
Thank you again
Donna
