Not even 3 inches tall, but a lot of expression packed into this wonderful little carved figure, who might be contemplating the meaning of life, or maybe just waiting patiently for someone else to arrive. The deep shape of the head suggests either a big brain or a hair bun (maybe both!), and then this great posture, with detailed fingers resting on bent knees. Carved of pine I believe, with a wonderful patina and a big presence.
2 3/4" t x 7/8" w x 1 1/4"d. Early 20th century I believe.
