Is it a gecko or a lizard? We had a bit of a debate about this but lizards have claws and this has little round gecko feet so on balance we decided it’s a gecko. All agreed that it’s extremely cute though, and fun to hang in your fireplace or to have climbing up a wall somewhere. It is made from tin and fired by a combination of different gases and melted copper and brass. The beautiful iridescent blues and greens are created in a secret technique known only by their makers.
Each one has unique colours and patterns formed by molten copper.
They are hand made in Mexico and fairly traded.
There is a small hanging loop on the back – undo the chain attaching the permadangle to the handle, and re-fix it with the gecko in place.
