Stands 11 3/4" tall; the plinth is 4 " x 3 ". Much more interesting than a bust, this statuette depicts the great author in his late years.

The author of timeless classics - War and Peace, Resurrection and Anna Karenina to name a few - Tolstoy was considered a peerless novelist even by some of his great contemporaries such as Dostoevsky and Chekhov.

We find his busts from the Soviet era occasionally, but his full standing statuettes are very uncommon.

This piece can be a meaningful decorative highlight for a library or classroom!
