Hand carved slingshot in the shape of a lovely heron. Notice the carved pick, eyes and long neck and legs details in this beautiful yet dangerous weapon. Slingshots are very common hunting weapons still used in the Guatemalan Highlands. Young boys like to catch small birds, lizards or even mice with their slingshots and they customize them with a special look. Patina all over the piece denotes use and age. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping!
