Regal and outfitted appropriately in royal vestments of light blue and ruby, this king of the forest, mounted on a gold pole makes a dramatic and delightful ornament. Made of resin, he is reflective of the old-fashioned style carousel animals
The ornament measure 4” H and is attached to a gold string for display purposes.
A charming memento of the mystical creatures seen in the famous ballet fantastique, The Enchanted Forest, often performed by the American Ballet Theatre.

Animals in the Opera
From Aida to Carmen, from Die Zauberflöte to the Ring cycle—animals both real and mythological have been seen on the operatic stage for centuries.
Horses, donkeys, bears, elephants, birds, dragons, and many others are featured as minor, and sometimes major, characters in operas performed all over the world. In the Met’s first season at Lincoln Center in 1966–67, goats and a camel were seen in the world premiere of Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra.
More recently, horses have graced the stage in La Fanciulla del West, among others, a mule appeared in Pagliacci, and a pair of Irish Wolfhounds starred in Lucia di Lammermoor. Audience favorite Sir Gabriel the Donkey has had recurring roles in Il Barbiere di Siviglia and La Bohème.
