Although hollow, it weighs almost 14 lbs.

Overall, good, vintage, used and very distressed condition. The piece likely was kept outdoors for some time, hence the heavy chipping and flaking of the painted finish throughout. The major flaw is that his two left fangs are broken away. The condition has been considered in the pricing.
