Carved Wood Monk Priest 14" Friar Figure Statue Souvenir Guatemala 1966

14" tall carved wood monk/priest/friar figure/statue.  'Guatemala' crudely carved into the base.  The wood looks much like walnut but is not as heavy - might be an exotic wood (I am not a wood expert).  Written in black marker on the back 'Como Un Recuerdo de Sues Tudiante, Jose  Aug. 1966'.  Loosely translated means as a remembrance of Sues Tudiante.  Perhaps a souvenir from travelling to Guatemala.  Unsigned by the maker.  Unvarnished, yet the carved surfaces are smoothly worn.
