A mandrake is a creature (monster?) that is born of the roots of the mandrake plant (shocking similarity in name, isn't it?). The roots of the plant, which comes from the Mediterranean region and is a member of the nightshade family, are said to form in a human-like shape in both males and females. The scary part is when you remove it from the soil. It is said that the scream of the mandrake will kill the person or creature that does.
Luckily for you, and us as well, our mandrake is just a charm. The cute (or ugly) little creature looks happy to see you. Although, that smile could be hiding something sinister.
The charm measures about 1 inch high and 5/8 inch wide. The hanging hole has been beautifully crafted in to the branches (hair?) of the mandrake.
