Measuring approx 4 3/4 tall, what makes him most unusual is his nodder head that is linked to the donger below, so it'nods' as you ring him! The head is attached to the donger with a brass link through a hole in the base of the Shaman's neck (see photo). There is a pivot pin under his armpits to enable the swing - Amazing! - please note - this does not appear to be the original pivot pin as it is not made of brass but can easily be removed and replaced with a more sympathetic solution if so desired! As such, the nod is a little erratic currently so it might benefit from a little tinkering to get it operating smoothly again!
