Ferdinand The Bull was a famous cartoon character, right after WWII. This big fierce looking Mexican Bull was a lover not a fighter, he loved flowers, and refused to fight the Matador.  This is a mask of Ferdie, made in Mexico, hand carved from madero, which is wood, in Spanish, I don't know what kind of wood this is but it is soft, and traditionally found in masks.  Ferdinand's horns come off for shipping,  and slip right back on.  The mask measures 9 inches tall, and 10 inches wide, the horns are 6 inches long.  Ferdie, was always licking his lips, when he encountered a field of flowers, hence the flowers on his face.  Hand painted with natural paints, not used anymore. It is easier to use commercial paints now. I can't remember, but I think this was a Disney character. I remember watching the cartoons back then.  In near mint condition, with some of the paint fading from his tongue, not as bright a red as it once was, but just as charming.  Thanks for shopping in the Land of Enchantment!
