It is a beautiful, well-made little figure (make sure to look at the measurements, it's tiny)! It has a good weight and will serve me well in keeping recipes from flying away should a breeze come through the kitchen. Depending on the angle, it might look like a little bear. In any case, it's a nice piece of functional art that won't take up too much space. It would also make a nice name plate holder on your table setting or as a nice detail(s) on your tablescape.
