I don't know whether or not it is Witco because I never see that stuff in person and so I'm no expert. I probably would have bought it if it was cheap but I dunno....She sure is ugly.

The carving is, but I don't think that background is original.

Kirby, good find! Yes, she is a Witco. Some mention of her "sisters" can be found
here. She's definitely a keeper. If by chance she isn't quite what you want for your home, then let me know.

I saw the same Witco at the Swap Meet, shortly after chattin' with Kirby. I was with Krustiki and Ookoo Lady at the time and although I knew what it was, even at the ridiculously low price they had it for, it still wasn't in my budget (Krustiki & Ookoo just didn't care for it much, I think.) Kirby, you got one heck of a deal, because (well, depending on the final price) I understand the same sellers had another one that they sold earlier in the day for more than twice the amount they were asking for this one.

Good score!

Here's a Witco(?) we found today at the flea market, but we're not quite sure what it's supposed to be. It looks like a side-view of someone holding a knight's sword and shield, but the face looks more like a monkey!

Perhaps it's the Conquistador Chic answer to the Monkey Wearing a Fez?
