Weird and Wonderful Folk Art Carved Vertebrae (?) Bone Bat!

Regular price $160.00

This crazy and I think pretty amazing thing! It’s a bat, but appears to have been carved from what I think must have been a lumbar vertebrae, I would guess from a cow. One hole was drilled through for the eyes and a slit for the beak, and I’m not quite sure what other interventions! The whole thing was stained and mounted to a wooden panel, which has a good amount of age. Pretty excellent, and though I’ve seen a few other folk art creations made of vertebrae bones, I have never ever seen anything like this!

11 1/8 l x 4 t x  3 7/8” d not including hangers. Very good condition.
