Still, there were a couple of Thai souvenirs left unpacked, so they get to be opened up first!
I brought home one major display item, a figure of a dancer in a monkey warrior mask. As figures go, he's purely a display piece, having no articulation and being permanently attached to a stand. Still, as display items go, I think he's fairly eye-catching.
In addition to him, I also brought home a small set of keychain dolls (each in traditional garb) to give away to friends. I've parted with half of them already, but I'm including photos of the remaining three here as well.
Starting with the mini dolls (interestingly, each of them actually has 4 points of articulation, so they're not static figures, unlike the big guy) :

There's not much else to say about the mini dolls, so back to the monkey warrior!
|From this angle he appears to be beckoning to the viewer.|
