This handsome hand wrought, hollow copper sculpture is of a Brahman cow. In minimalist fashion, the artist depicted the hump on her back, her large pendulous ears, long tail, curved horns and four teat udder. Expertly cut and welded, this piece has a lovely darkened patina and stands sturdily wherever she’s placed. Measuring 8 3/4 inches long, 5 1/2 inches tall to the top of her back and in excellent condition, this sculpture is a one of a kind art find.

PYH – 4257
Description

This one of a kind original sculpture was made of heavy natural clay, hollow but weighing nine pounds, two ounces. The subject is a very sensitively portrayed woman’s head that was given a finish of bronze colored glaze, with darker glaze in the nooks and crannies to emphasize details like hair and eyes. Obviously done by a very talented sculptor, it is unsigned or marked in any way.

This wonderful sculpture stands 10 inches tall and measures 8 inches across the widest part of the woman’s face. The flared base is oval, 5 inches by 4 1/2 inches and the piece is in excellent condition–no cracks or breaks, no marring of the glaze. This is a work of art you’ll be proud to own and display.More Details

Description

Native Americans made useful objects out of reeds and rushes for thousands of years. Floating decoys like this one, strongly resembling the canvasbacks that darkened the sky in huge flocks, lured waterfowl to the ponds and lakes to be bow-hunted or snared.

This decoy has a carved wooden head, a wooden breast and tail, with the central portion of the body composed of strips of a type of marsh plant. (Not being botanists, we’re not able to narrow that down—possibilities are bulrushes, tule reeds, and river cane, to name a few.) It’s in good condition, with chipping to the tail feathers the main indication of use and no breaks in the strips. Measuring almost 14 inches long from the tip of the bill to the tip of the tail, it stands 6 inches at the tallest point of the head and is about 4 inches wide at the belly. This decoy is a handsome piece of American folk art with a very pleasing sculptural quality. More Details click here…

Description

A member of the Navajo tribe, Jack Black was a very talented artist and sculptor. Born in Galveston, Texas, he lived in Arizona, opening a studio in Sedona in 1984. Inspired by native Americans and the colors of the desert, Mr. Black used for this grouping a pale adobe colored clay with a light sky blue glaze. The unglazed areas that expose the clay color were used for the man’s face, the woman’s head and, on the smallest piece, the pot and “table rock” base. He also used a brownish glaze in the curves and crevices to give it an aged look, although he used very little on these pieces compared to some we’ve seen. The shadow you see on the front of the woman in photograph #2 is actually some of that glaze. All of the pieces are incised on the bottom with the Jack Black signature, along with his cypher, a figure 8 with a vertical line through it, and the year of creation.

Mr. Black, who became a well-respected artist before his death in 2002, first sketched his ideas, then sculpted them in clay before molds were made. Each artwork was created by hand and no two are identical. The three pieces shown are as follows:

–The man, standing tall, measures 12 1/2 inches tall with a base measurement of 4 inches by 3 3/4 inches. This figure weighs 2 pounds 2 ounces and is dated 1985.

–The squatting woman, weighs 2 pounds 5 ounces and measures 9 inches tall with an 8 inch by 5 1/2 inch base. The date is 1984.

–The miniature group on the “rock” base measures 5 1/2 inches tall overall, with a base 4 inches by 6 inches and it weighs 11 ounces. It’s dated 1984.

The photographs are deceptive–these are large, impressive pieces. They are in outstanding condition and with their simple lines and smooth matte surfaces, they complement any decor.

Young Black Couple Wood Sculptures Signed, Dated

Wood Carving of African American Couple Side View-1026 x 1306-jpg.JPG

$225.00 SALE $175.00

These substantial sculptures of a young black man and woman were carved from solid blocks of beautifully grained wood, possibly African mahogany. The date 1975 is incised on the bottom of each, along with the name Abner. We’ve seen several pieces by Abner, all of fine carvings, but we don’t know if Abner is a first or last name and we’re unable to find further information on him or her.

This couple was, however, sculpted by a master carver. The youthful male with his high forehead, curly hair and collared shirt is very handsome and the young female with her bonnet on her head is very beautiful. He stands 13 ½ inches tall and she is 12 ½ inches. They each stand on 4 inch oval bases and weigh 2 pounds 6 ounces each.

Their condition is excellent; the male has an age split which begins on the left side of his head and continues down into the base. Someone has written in black on the bottom of the female “Mother’s Day 2002”—we cannot imagine doing that to a piece of art but there you are. Both pieces stand flat, but the male one is a little wobbly when you first set him down.

You’ll enjoy these 20th century folk art pieces in traditional or modern interiors.

Description

The Egyptians worshipped all kinds of cats and had several lioness-headed goddesses. King Tutankhamun had three funerary beds in his tomb. This piece is modeled after the front posts on one of those beds, which were shaped like the legs and paws of the lionesses, topped with their heads.

This piece is greenware (clay objects which do not get fired in a kiln to produce ceramic ware) and was hollow-cast and dried. It was then hand painted and patinated with touches of gilt. The painting is actually quite good, especially the heavily outlined, hypnotic eyes.

The head weighs four pounds. It is about 9 inches tall, 5 inches across the base and 6 inches at the widest point. It’s in great condition with a small chip on the center of the front right side and some tiny ones along the bottom left edge.

This is a striking piece of art that will please lovers of cats and Egyptian decor alike. More Details…

Here’s a link to a Smithsonian Institute Magazine article that show the original lioness head:
