Hand carved slingshot in the shape of the beautiful Archangel Saint Michael. Behold the splendid carvings that highlight the wings and his skirt as the Angel stands in a round cloud-shaped stand while his hands are described in a praying position. Notice the rare red glass eyes attached to his head. 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!
