This is without a doubt the most powerful wood carving  we have ever presented for sale. The carver managed to convey an extraordinary  amount of humanity and detail in this 7 inch tall bust. Her kerchief is atop her curly hair;her eyes are carved out and have a soulful stare. The baseis approximately 3 ½ inches by 3 inches and is curved infront to truly represent a bust.

 

As a side note, but certainly not proof of provenance, we purchased this wonderful piece in St. Augustine, Florida, several decades ago and have cherished it ever since.

 

There are two narrow age cracks in the kerchief, one on the side and one on the back. A part from those, the beautifully-figured wood is in excellent condition.

 This is a striking example of folk art that would enhance any collection.
