Over a year in development with time and meticulous attention paid to the crafting of the sculpt and color detail – as well as the base and figure – including individual blades of grass, purple and orange geckos in the trees and the multi-colored macaw, and beauty of Jana herself – including her beautiful blue eyes! Statues of comparable quality can retail for as much as $300, but the initial offering this month is just $189.99!


Sculpted from Cho’s art by Tom and Joy Snyder, Jungle Girl stands 7 inches tall, 8 1/2 inches wide and 6 inches deep!
