Such a strong graphic these four figures make as they march in lockstep along the length of this arrow, the hands of each on the shoulders of the one in front of him. I presume these four are meant to represent soldiers, and would guess this dates to around WW2--but I think they can read as comrades of many sorts, perpetually heading forward as a team! Carved of wood, with a great old painted surface, including mellow gold for the length of the arrow and silver for its point.
22 1/8" long x 9 3/8" tall (including metal stand), 7/8" deep. Great condition, with no chips or splits or other issues whatsoever.
