Japanese inscription マイルズ (meaning Mairuzu in Japanese, Miles in English on right/bottom foot)
Ceramic Matango - Got this from Miles Nielsen (Munktiki) right before he took off to study ceramics in Japan (April 2008). I traded some classic Japanese Vinyl Swag for this lil'guy and have been happy ever since. Mantago is ceramic and measures roughly 14" tall. This edition is primarily green with yellow chest/shoulder fringe and red eyes. Estimated value is $250-$300 and not more than 50 were said to be made (info provided by http://www.munk-e.com/14%20inch%20Matango.htm).
