These are extra special because someone took the time to mark put the history of them on the bottom so we know exactly where and when this set came from.

Baguio Philippines 9/27/68 hand carved by the Igrot Indians from the mountains around there, They were headhunters and in 1968 they were very primitive and many of them still are.

Beautiful red colored Ironwood log that has been split in half and carved to sell to tourist. See the wood grain on the back side each piece came from the same tree. Very hard to carve this and you bet there were no power tool in sight!

Have big folk art ears it the way they carve them all dont think they really saw any horses in the mountains yet the faces and eyes are done very well.

They stand 9" high 5" x 4 3/4" wide 7 lbs. 14 oz.
