The Black Panther is an honorary title bestowed on the reigning monarch of the jungle kingdom of Wakanda. T'Challa was educated in the finest schools in Europe and America, and he embarked on a series of grueling tests to prove he was worthy of assuming the title after the current monarch, his father, was murdered by Klaw when he traveled to Wakanda to steal vibranium to help him turn sound into physical objects. T'Challa is an incredible athlete, acrobat, gymnast, and combat specialist. His mask enhances night vision, gloves expel gases, and his vibranium boots allow him to land from great heights with no problem. He also has vibranium in his costume which makes bullets/punches ineffective in harming him.
The wood is 4" square and 1/4" thick mahogany, carefully cut by hand on a scroll saw. It's finished with 3 coats of a water-based polyurethane for water resistance, and backed with 1/8" thick cork carefully hand-painted black for the head shot and white/silver for the neck (the last photo shows this before assembly) - these deskorations can double as coasters! Mahogany wood grain varies quite a bit from board to board so each deskoration is unique.
Be sure to get a deskoration stand to display T'Challa on your desk or mantel - you can find the stands here: https://centuryartisans.com/products/deskoration-stands
