Sensitive Old Low Relief Carving of World Wise Looking Woman

Regular price $110.00

I read this figure as a woman, and what first came to my mind when I saw it was Willa Cather's My Antonia, or perhaps a character from Steinbeck, persevering with grace and determination through one trial after another. She looks a bit weary for sure, but to me like quite a force, and I find this carving beautifully tender and nuanced and honest-- of the sort that might offer a feeling of kinship when things feel pretty tough! 

6 13/16" x 5 1/8" x 7/8" thick with a beautiful dry wood patina.
